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 [...]

Concentrated solar power research

Concentrated solar thermal (CST) technology concentrates sunlight onto a target to create very high temperatures. This heat can be used directly in industrial processes or to generate electricity by heating water for steam to turn a turbine.   CSIRO's heliostat field with Tower 2 operating on-sun in Newcastle, NSW   [...]

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 [...]
