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, [...]

Letlhakane Concentrated Solar Power Plant in Botswana

The Letlhakane Concentrated Solar Power Plant is a planned 100 MW concentrated solar power station in Botswana. The owner, developer and operator of this solar power complex will be an independent power producer, whose identity will be revealed when the ongoing open bidding is concluded. Bids were received until June [...]

The Business Case for Storing Energy Thermally in Former Coal Plants

Compared to other energy storage technologies, thermal energy storage has a huge advantage. It can be dropped-in to repurpose existing coal power plants by simply replacing the fuel, coal, with thermal energy storage to be charged with excess renewable energy from the grid, and discharged using nearly all of the [...]

How concentrated solar power could fuel the future | Big Think

What if we could not only harness the power of the sun, but actually use it to run the entire planet? Concentrated solar power (CSP) has the potential to do just that — using arrays of revolving mirrors called heliostats, light is reflected into a massive receiver. Thanks to recent [...]

Progress of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park

Work progress in the 4th phase, which is the largest single-site project that combines Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) and photovoltaic technology using the IPP model. HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), inspected the work progress at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al [...]

Concentrated solar power – one of the main energy storage methods

The concentrated solar power station (CSP station) was first developed in 2012 and operates in parallel with photovoltaic power generation. Concentrated solar power is very important to make up for the intermittency of solar power generation. Concentrated solar power can assume multiple roles of “base load power supply + [...]

Synhelion produces First Solar Syngas in Wood’s Industrial-Scale Reforming Reactor

Synhelion has become the first company in the world to succeed in producing syngas on an industrial scale using only solar heat as an energy source. The Swiss solar fuel pioneer successfully demonstrated this on the multi-focus solar tower of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Jülich, North Rhine- Westphalia. [...]

Project would make jet fuel using concentrated solar power and green hydrogen

A demonstration project in California plans to use concentrated solar power and green hydrogen to produce what its development partners said would be sustainable aviation fuels. The project will take place at concentrated solar power (CSP) provider Heliogen's demonstration facility in Lancaster in northern Los Angeles County. Heliogen is partnering [...]
