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.

Testing components for Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plants in Morocco and South Africa

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.

Saudi-German workshop focuses on concentrated solar power (CSP) collaboration

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.

Germany’s DLR expands concentrated solar power (CSP) courses through enerMENA program

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.

Direct steam generation provides better performance for CSP plants

The use of water as the direct working medium in the solar collectors allows a higher process temperature and increases the efficiency of the power plant.
