The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) is supporting the Indian power provider NTPC in its project to establish a research centre to test and develop solar power plants and their components. DLR researchers are supplying systems, measurement equipment and expertise, and are helping to select [...]
Energy researchers at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) have put into service an innovative thermal storage system that uses lime as the storage medium. The lime storage system is a further development of an initial prototype and can store energy more economically and efficiently. [...]
The concentrated solar power is directly absorbed by nearly black ceramic particles in the receiver.
DLR has developed the ‘CentRec’ centrifugal receiver, an innovative concept for concentrated solar power (CSP) plants
In a new radiation receiver developed for solar tower power plants, ceramic particles of around one millimetre in size are heated to 1000 degrees Celsius.
The German Aerospace Center is testing the performance and durability of reflectors and receivers for concentrated solar power (CSP) plants in Ouarzazate, Morocco and in Bokpoort, South Africa.
DLR provides freeware simulation program for assessment of renewable power plant projects.
Until 2032, the Kingdom will develop 41 gigawatts of solar energy, of which 25 gigawatts are meant to be produced with concentrating solar thermal power technology for Saudi Arabia.
Researchers at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) have started operating a receiver test facility on the tower of the concentrating solar power plant in Jülich.
The German Aerospace Center (DLR) has produced 55 videos to serve as capacity building courses for concentrating solar power (CSP) specialists in nations in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
How much solar energy reaches a power plant? Is the Sun often obscured by dust or other atmospheric particles?
This Global Atlas is the largest initiative of its kind to date, and is intended to help countries and corporations to determine the potential for renewable resources worldwide.
The German Aerospace Center has announced that the first solar power tower concentrating solar power (CSP) plant in North Africa will be built in Boughezoul, Algeria, though a collaboration between Algeria and Germany.
In Morocco, a group of companies led by Saudi Arabian ACWA Power International is going to build a power plant that will provide electricity for less than 15 euro cents per kWh.
