ORC-Connected Fresnel and Parabolic Trough Fields for Concentrated Solar Power

Italy’s feed-in tariff for medium-size concentrating solar power plants has supported the installation of a 10,000 m² Fresnel collector array in Sardinia (see photo). The mirrors have been in operation since spring this year and are connected to an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) unit with 600 kW of nominal electric [...]

Hybrid Microgrid in Italy to Include Concentrated Solar Power

Development is underway on the Italian island of Sardinia of a 1.2 MW hybrid microgrid that incorporates concentrating solar power (CSP), a diversion from the more common use of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels in microgrids. CSP condenses the sun’s rays into a small area, typically through use of mirrors or [...]
