Engie to build Concentrated Solar Power plant for Heineken Spain

Engie Espana has signed an agreement with Heineken to build a concentrated solar power (CSP) plant at the Heineken brewery in Seville. Engie Espana will work on the project under the build-own-operate-transfer (BOOT) contract, taking on design, management and financing duties. It said that it will supply power to Heineken [...]

Cooling Method for Concentrated Solar Power Plants Saves Water by Using Radiative Cooling Systems

The world is currently transitioning to an endurable energy economy in the hopes of dealing with the current energy and climate crisis, and concentrated solar power (CSP) plants are becoming a significant player in this field. To reduce water usage for cooling concentrated solar panels (CSP), scientists have developed a supplemental cooling [...]
