New sun rays for solar thermal, the energy future of Spain? With 49 operational concentrating solar power plants totaling 2.3 gigawatts, Spain is a world leader in terms of production capacity with this renewable and also technologically. And this, despite the fact that the installed power has been stagnant [...]
Solar thermal energy is established as a key technology in accelerating the decarbonization of energy systems, both in terms of power generation and heat supply to industrial processes. At the conference you will learn how to decarbonize electricity production can be accelerated thanks to the renewable energy storage capacity [...]
The SolarPACES Technology Award 2018 has gone to the DLR Institute of Solar Research and the DLR start-up CSP Services for QFly, an airborne system for the quality assessment of concentrated solar power plants. Over 500 people attended the annual conference held by the SolarPACES network of researchers in Casablanca [...]
Luis Crespo, president of Protermosolar, has presented in the plenary session a report that shows that the concentrated solar power allows to reduce the need for fossil fuel backup. The XXIV edition of SolarPACES was held in Casablanca (Morocco), with the participation of more than 550 attendees from 41 different [...]
In this paper, we first proceed to develop the mathematical tools for the calculation of CO2 emissions abatement (annual and total) due to the installation of concentrating solar power (CSP) plants.
NREL developed and applied a systematic approach to review literature on life cycle assessments of concentrating solar power (CSP) systems.
Reacting to President Obama’s major new plan to combat climate change, Rhone Resch, president and CEO of SEIA, today released the following statement.
Shifting subsidies to the development of climate-benign energy sources such as wind energy, solar power, and geothermal energy will help stabilize the earth’s climate.
Regions were selected for the study on account of existing or planned large photovoltaic solar energy or Concentrating Solar Power plants.
A renewable energy future doesn't mean sacrificing our quality of life. We can maintain rates of economic growth and lead prosperous, healthy lives.
The 25 warmest years on record have come since 1980. And the 10 warmest years since global recordkeeping began in 1880 have come since 1998.
