Champagne and strawberries, chocolate and peanut butter, geothermal and solar energy -- some things just go nicely together. Enel Green Power North America’s Stillwater plant, outside the desert town of Fallon, Nevada, came online in 2009 as a conventional geothermal plant and later added solar panels. After adding concentrating solar [...]
Nevada's governor, the premier of Italy and the director of the U.S. Energy Department's renewable energy labs on Tuesday formally dedicated the final piece of the only hybrid power plant in the world producing renewable energy by combining geothermal with two kinds of solar power. The Stillwater Hybrid Power Plant [...]
The 2 MW Stillwater Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Project is currently under construction in Fallon, Nevada.
SkyFuel, Inc. is the technology provider for the parabolic trough solar field being integrated into the heating loop of Enel Green Power (EGP) North America's Stillwater geothermal power plant.
Enel Green Power has started construction of a 17 MW concentrated solar power (CSP) plant to operate alongside the existing 33 MW Stillwater geothermal power station in Nevada.
The Archetype project, coordinated by Enel Green Power and has been given EU funding through its Seventh Framework Programme, will see employment on an industrial scale the technology used at Enel’s Archimede plant
Enel Green Power participates in international events for the development of the Mediterranean area, witnessing the commitment of the Group, which is a founding member of the Desertec and Res4Med projects.
The molten salts system will allow the concentrating solar thermal power plant to generate electricity in the absence of sunlight.
Endesa will carry out a research project to demonstrate the technical and economic effectiveness of solar energy generation using the Stirling dish, a concentrating solar thermal dynamic cycle.
Enel is in the early stages of developing a similar hybrid Concentrating Solar Power-Geothermal “test plant” in the same location.
The plant, expected to be built in Sicily by EGP and several Italian partners, will use the CSP technology that uses sunlight and mirrors to create steam that turns a turbine to generate power, Pasini said.
Archimede can collect and store the heat of the sun for many hours in order to use it to generate electricity at night or in overcast conditions.
Out of the 19 bidding groups, 4 were selected, one of which will be chosen to build the Ouarzazate 500 MW concentrating solar power plant.
