Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) Defined Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) is a rapidly growing form of solar energy that harnesses the power of the sun to generate thermal energy and electricity. It uses mirrors to concentrate and focus sunlight onto a specific area, where it is converted into heat. CSP systems [...]

Concentrated solar power has one huge advantage: the energy can be converted into electricity even when the Sun isn’t shining

James McKenzie believes that “concentrator solar power” could be the answer to our environmental woes. The Ivanpah Solar Power Facility in Nevada uses thousands of mirrors to focus sunlight onto a tank of water at the top of a tower, with the resulting steam being used to drive turbines.

Engineers India Invites Bids for Concentrated Solar Power Technology Systems

Engineers India (EIL), a government-run company, has issued a tender inviting bids from domestic and foreign companies that supply Concentrated Solar Technology (CST) systems for balance of project services. The bidding process closes on March 7, 2023, and bids will be opened on March 9. The invitation is open to [...]

Auction Failure Curtails Concentrating Solar Power in Spain’s Ecological Transition

The low price of the ministry and the uncertainty of connection delay the installation of a new solar thermal, which in 2025 should be double the current one according to the PNIEC. The generation of energy with solar thermal technology has been stuck for a decade in Spain. Not a [...]

Exploiting the operational flexibility of a concentrated solar power plant with hydrogen production

The efficient integration of renewable energy with hydrogen storage is an important means for China to achieve carbon neutrality. Concentrated solar power (CSP) is an emerging technology for solar energy utilization that combines the advantages of power generation and energy storage. However, CSP has not been fully exploited because of [...]

Concentrated solar power plant on track for 2023 commissioning in South Africa

One of the first project-financed Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) with molten salt central receiver projects in the world is on track for a late 2023 commissioning. Awarded to ACWA Power and SolarReserve in 2015 under South Africa’s REIPPP programme bid window 3.5 – which was specifically created for CSP projects [...]

Sandia’s NSTTF facilitates ground-breaking experiments this summer

World’s first particle-to-supercritical CO2 heat-exchanger system and on-sun falling particle receiver connected to a supercritical CO2 loop testing to take place. Sandia National Laboratories’ National Solar Thermal Test Facility (NSTTF) will host a number of “firsts” in 2020, including testing a particle-to-supercritical CO2 heat-exchanger system, and the world’s first on-sun [...]

Concentrated Solar Power costs are expected to fall by 79% by 2022

Concentrating Solar Power costs have already plummeted by 47% compared to 2010. It is likely that costs will continue their downward trajectory thanks to economies of scale, deployment in locations with better solar resources and lower costs of capital, according to a study by the International Renewable Energy Agency [...]

Application of BCMC Storage & Heat Exchange System in Concentrated Solar Power

Concentrated Solar Power is a green form of clean energy. The whole life cycle is environmentally friendly, the energy storage cost is low, the technology is mature, the power output is stable and controllable, and it has peak-shaving capability and can be used as a basic power source. The [...]

Vast Solar seeks funding for 50 MW Concentrated Solar Power, PV hybrid in Australia

Australian concentrated solar power (CSP) specialist Vast Solar plans to develop a hybrid project that comprises a 30 MW CSP facility with 10 hours of storage and a 20 MW PV plant, and to make this happen it needs to secure $75 million. The company said it was already [...]

Field of mirrors in Gobi Desert helps generate concentrated solar power

A pilot project in the Gobi Desert that generates energy out concentrated solar power by using mirrors or lenses to concentrate a large area of sunlight onto a small area, is the first of its kind of China and breaks a number of records in Asia, in terms of [...]
