Australia’s Vast Concentrated Solar Power to include green methanol demo for shipping

Methanol is used to make many chemicals, but what makes producing green methanol most interesting for the future is that the shipping industry, finally having to deal with climate emissions, considers green methanol the most viable alternative to today’s fossil-based marine gas oil. “In the last 12 months, major international [...]

Heat pump solution from Aalborg CSP will boost the efficiency of solar heating plant and biomass boiler

Danish renewable energy specialist Aalborg CSP has secured yet another order for an integrated heat pump system for the production of district heating. The order is awarded by the Danish utility company Envafors and is a turnkey contract consisting of a 10.2 MW air-to-water heat pump with associated pipes and [...]

What happened with Concentrated Solar Power Crescent Dunes plant?

The Crescent Dunes Concentrated Solar Power project in the US was the first of a kind at 110 MW. The first tower CSP with thermal energy storage at full-scale. (Above about 150 MW, the distances of the solar field encircling the tower receiver has optical limits) It was developed by [...]

Concentrated solar power will help China cut costs of climate action, study finds

Solar thermal energy turns out to be the key to China meeting its climate commitments. A new study investigates the best combination of renewables for providing the lowest cost to power system operators in two of China's provinces best suited to scale up renewable energy. China's power systems operators [...]

How can Synhelion’s solar receiver achieve such high temperatures?

Synhelion’s solar receiver achieves a temperature of 1,500°C and higher. That’s unprecedented. Even the Gen3 particle-based solar receiver being pilot-scale tested now at Sandia – and the DLR CentRec receiver licensed to Heliogen – operate at the (relatively!) lower temperature of 1,000°C. One of Synhelion’s solar receivers is on the [...]
