DOE Invests Half a Billion to De-risk Cheaper Energy Storage

Dive Brief: To help commercialize emerging energy storage that can power the grid for at least 10 hours, the Department of Energy has launched a $505 million four-year initiative. It aims to lower barriers to grid energy storage, and support small-scale, behind-the-meter pilots as well as large utility-scale demonstrations. DOE’s [...]

ATA Webinar: Capitalize on the Coming US Grid Storage Boom

Gearing up your company to capitalize on the utility-scale energy storage boom in the US A decarbonizing grid relying on variable renewable – solar PV and wind – for the lion’s share of the energy it integrates, will over time require energy services and increasingly rely on energy storage [...]

Will the US Demo Long-duration Energy Storage in Time?

In a new study from Sandia National Laboratories; The Value of Long-Duration Energy Storage: Policy and Perception, researchers have published details regarding policies pertaining to long-duration energy storage (LDES), including feedback from  around 500 stakeholders. Respondents included representatives from utilities, governments, industry, academia, non-profits, and national labs. While for now, [...]

New Role For Concentrated Solar Power, With Green Hydrogen & A Perovksite Twist

Green hydrogen is going down in cost, and concentrating solar power could pick up the pace by ditching electrolysis in favor of a thermochemical process. New solar conversion efficiency records are a dime a dozen these days, and the cost of PV panels is continuing to sink like a stone. [...]

NREL scientists advance solar thermo-chemical hydrogen (STCH) production

Perovskite materials may hold the potential to play an important role in a process to produce hydrogen in a renewable manner, according to an analysis from scientists at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Hydrogen has emerged as an important carrier to store energy generated by renewable resources, as a substitute for [...]

MBR Solar Park are aiding Dubai’s push towards 100 percent clean energy

Dubai’s bid to ensure that 100 percent of its total power capacity comes from clean energy sources by 2050 as part of its Net Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy 2050 is on track, supported by the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park (MBR Solar Park). One of the most extensive [...]

How will the pellet tower Concentrated Solar Power system lift several tons of hot sand?

Sandia Laboratories, USA, recently published a paper on the heat transfer cost analysis of using sand particles such as bauxite as heat transfer medium to transfer heat at temperatures up to 1500°C in tower solar thermal (CSP) power generation technology. The subject is one of the first to fully investigate [...]

Vast Solar to build world-leading solar thermal project in South Australia

The Prime Minister and Minister for Industry, Energy and Emissions Reductions announced today that Vast Solar has received Australian Government backing to build a concentrated solar thermal power (CSP) plant in Port Augusta, South Australia. The plant will generate clean, low-cost, reliable power, and catalyse an export-focussed renewables manufacturing industry creating hundreds [...]

Salt makes Concentrated Solar Power more cost-effective – Unique test plant inaugurated

Solar thermal power plants use concentrated sunlight to first generate heat and then electricity. They are already in use today in particularly sunny regions, such as Spain, the USA or Chile. To further advance this technology and make it more competitive, the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum fuer Luft- und [...]

Saudi Arabia’s first hybrid concentrated solar power plant

To develop Saudi Arabia’s first hybrid concentrated solar power plant, also known as CSP, the renewable energy team at the energy ministry is expected to issue a request for qualifications for the contract by mid-May, Meed reports. According to an industry source, the plant named Hinakiyah hybrid CSP/solar project will [...]

Doosan Škoda commissions turbine for 110 MW Concentrated Solar Power plant in Chile

Doosan Škoda Power has commissioned a 110MW steam turbine for the concentrated solar power plant (CSP) in the Atacama Desert, Chile. The plant, owned by CSP developer Cerro Dominador, makes use of the excellent sun radiation combined with high altitude in the Atacama Desert. The plant provides power to approximately [...]

NamPower starts feasibility study for Concentrated Solar Power plant

With a tender for a utility-scale concentrated solar power plant likely to be launched this year, Namibia’s embrace of renewables is gaining momentum. It also offers fresh hope to advocates of CSP technology following past setbacks. With an installed capacity of 680 MW, Namibia produces 70% of its electricity from [...]
