‘Solar At Night’ resolves renewable storage gap

A new campaign called Solar At Night has been launched to ensure Australia’s future energy system includes the storage required to produce reliable and renewable energy overnight. Without investment in long-duration storage, Australia risks increased night-time price volatility and unnecessary reliance on fossil-fuel generation, Australia’s peak body for solar thermal [...]

Concentrated solar power

Concentrated solar power (CSP, also known as concentrating solar power, concentrated solar thermal) systems generate solar power by using mirrors or lenses to concentrate a large area of sunlight onto a receiver.[1] Electricity is generated when the concentrated light is converted to heat (solar thermal energy), which drives a heat [...]

Concentrated Solar Power Overview

Concentrating solar power (CSP) refers to the generation of electricity from concentrated direct normal irradiance (DNI) from the sun. Since the concentration ratio used is typically high, it requires a tracking system to redirect the concentrated sunlight to a receiver. The receiver can be comprised of a heat transfer fluid, [...]
