The future of thermodynamic solar energy in Italy starts from Sicily, where it was “ideally” born with the burning mirrors of Archimedes from Syracuse. Thanks to the alliance between ENEA and the Italian industry, in fact, the first plant built in Italy that integrates concentrated solar power with photovoltaics will [...]
A Concentrated Solar Power plant which produces energy from sun and sand - a promising technology in renewable energy sector - has begun its operation in Italy's Sicily. In the first 2-megawatt modular unit of solar thermo electric power (STEM) technology, solar radiation captured by 786 heliostats is concentrated on [...]
Sicily has announced the opening of the concentrated solar power (CSP) facility that uses molten salt as a heat collection medium.
Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plant will be using a central tower technology that produces superheated steam to power a steam turbo-generator.
Molten salts are considered as the preferred HTF to enable the necessary technology leap that the CSP industry is expecting.
Sicily, the island of Solar Thermal energy. Towards the Charter of the Sun, an energy pact between territory and industry.
The plant, expected to be built in Sicily by EGP and several Italian partners, will use the CSP technology that uses sunlight and mirrors to create steam that turns a turbine to generate power, Pasini said.
