The Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, the world’s biggest solar-thermal power plant, generated 67,300 megawatt-hours electricity in February, up from about 30,300 a year earlier, according to NRG Energy Inc., which operates the faculty and co-owns it with BrightSource Energy Inc. and Alphabet Inc.’s Google. The operator of a massive [...]
One of the most ambitious solar energy projects on the planet is in trouble. The $2.2 billion Ivanpah concentrated solar power facility in California has fallen well short of its expected power output and now has a year to get itself back on track, or it risks being forced to [...]
Ivanpah Concentrated Solar Power Production Up 170% in 2015, An Open Letter to the Wall Street Journal
The Wall Street Journal has returned attention to the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, the $2.2 billion Department of Energy-backed concentrated solar power plant.
Ivanpah, the world's largest power tower Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) project, seems to attract a lot of controversy.
Ivanpah is the largest Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) facility in the world and is located near Ivanpah, Calif., in the Mojave Desert.
Through these facilities, NRG helps power nearly one million homes at full output with clean, renewable solar energy, which is helping reinvent the US energy ecosystem.
Now that the world’s largest concentrated solar power (CSP) plant is operational in California’s Mojave Desert, the question is whether it will prove its mettle and whether more of those facilities will crop up.
All Three Units of 392 megawatt Ivanpah Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Plant Now Delivering Solar Power to California’s Electric Grid.
The world’s largest concentrated solar power development – the 392MW Ivanpah Solar Thermal Project is now online.
BrightSource estimates that the Ivanpah Concentrated Solar Power plant would involve some 1,000 jobs at the peak of construction, 86 permanent jobs, and total economic benefits of $3 billion.
World’s Largest Solar Thermal Power Tower System Takes Unique Approach to Predictive Maintenance Implementation in an Effort to Protect Against Unplanned Downtime.
The 377-megawatt Ivanpah solar thermal power plant achieved a milestone in its development recently, something called the “first flux.”
Planning for the project dates back to at least 2007, when BrightSource Energy applied for state permits for the plant, which was originally slated to comprise four power towers.
