Hybrid Concentrated Solar Power – PV offers lowest cost for Chile

A hybrid Concentrated Solar Power-PV plant with 13 hours of storage is the lowest cost power generation option for low-carbon baseload power in Chile, researchers at the Fraunhofer Chile Research Foundation said in a new report. The researchers studied four hybrid plant concepts and found that a combined CSP solar [...]

Hybrid PV – Concentrated Solar Power has a lower LCOE than gas in Chile

Researchers from the Center for Solar Energy Technologies of Fraunhofer Chile have conducted a comparative analysis which shows that the lowest levelized cost of energy (LCOE ) in Chile can be achieved by a combination of large scale PV and concentrated solar power (CSP). The Cerro Dominador PV-CSP project [...]

Efficiency limits of next-generation hybrid photovoltaic- concentrated solar power technology

Australia funds feasibility study for hybrid Concentrated Solar Power-hydro plant

RayGen Resources has secured A$3 million from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) to conduct a feasibility study for a pilot Concentrated Solar Power plant that uses water as storage medium. Located at Carwarp in north-west Victoria, the facility would deliver 4 MW of solar power generation, including 17 hours [...]

EDF and Masdar to build 800 MW concentrated solar power – PV hybrid in Morocco

Combination of PV and concentrated solar power with storage will boost 800 MW plant's flexibility, says winning consortium. The Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (MASEN) has announced – after a competitive international bidding process – that the consortium of EDF (through its subsidiary EDF Renewables), Abu Dhabi Future Energy [...]

Morocco hybrid Concentrated Solar Power – PV project seen as ‘game changer’ for costs

Technology coupling gains and a favorable development framework could see prices for Morocco’s pioneering Noor Midelt hybrid projects trend towards the lowest global CSP tariffs, experts told the CSP Madrid 2018 conference. Now entering the final stages of tendering, Morocco's Noor Midelt hybrid CSP-PV project is expected to set a [...]

Hybrid Concentrated Solar Power – PV gains

Last month, Spain's Acciona and Abengoa resumed construction of the 110 MW Cerro Dominador CSP plant after receiving a notice to proceed (NTP) from project owners. The Cerro Dominador plant is a tower design with 17.5 hours of molten salt thermal storage capacity. Abengoa is acting as technology partner for [...]

EDF talk on Morocco 800 MW NOOR Midelt Concentrated Solar Power+PV hybrid solar project

The Noor Midelt project is one of the initiatives under the Noor Solar Plan, which aims at producing a total capacity of 2,000 MW by 2020. The first phase of Noor Midelt is expected to consist of two 400MW hybrid concentrated solar power (CSP) and photovoltaic (PV) plants. For each [...]

Morocco expects price drop for hybrid Concentrated Solar Power plant

Design innovations and a favorable development framework should see Morocco hit its lowest prices for the hybrid PV-CSP Noor Midelt project and the country is joining global support schemes to diversify its funding supply, an official at the Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy (Masen), said. ACWA Power's Noor III CSP [...]

SUPCON offer USD180m bidding price (USD105/㎡on solar field) for China 50MW Concentrated Solar Power Tower hybrid project

Recently Luneng Haixi 50MW CSP molten salt Tower hybrid project in China called for tenders of EPC, and received 8 biddings from 8 Chinese companies.

Assessment of Hybrid Concentrated Solar Power-Biomass Plant Generation Potential in Sahel: Case Study of Senegal

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) is non-existent in Sahel. Such a situation arises from the high investment costs required by these energy infrastructures and from a lack of information on the identification of suitable sites to accommodate them. Conversely, CSP-biomass plants due to lower investment may be an option for [...]
