Wide-scale deployment of CSP molten salt towers will start soon. The CSP industry says to be ready for a wide-scale rollout of molten salt tower plants between 2018 and 2020.
Molten nitrate and potassium salts are used for energy storage in many CSP tower plants, but the 110 MW Crescent Dunes plant in Nevada and 20 MW Gemasolar plant in southern Spain are the only commercial tower plants to use molten salt as a heat transfer fluid (HTF) as well as for storage. Read More
Saudi Arabia has big plans for Renewable Energy with a target of 9.5GW by 2023. The government intends to invest between $30 billion and $50 billion across 60 projects, with 1 GW of capacity earmarked for Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), according to the Renewable Energy Project Development Office (REPDO), established in February 2017 to implement the country’s National Renewable Energy Program (NREP).
Saudi Arabia aims to exceed its target to generate 9.5 gigawatts of electricity from renewable energy, to highlight its long-term commitment to green energy and to give investors a sense of comfort that the Kingdom has a long-term vision for renewable energy.
Brønderslev, a Danish municipality with a population of 12,500, is setting up a multi-purpose renewable heat plant for their district heating network
It’s not gas, nor oil, its CSP (Concentrated Solar Power) that will heathen a small village in Denmark, North Europe, during the cold winters.
Denmark is a frontier for renewable energies and smart energy systems. Let’s have a look at the advantages of CSP for the region because normally we expect CSP in Southern parts of the world. Don’t we?
Media outlets recently reported that DEWA launched a 200 megawatt tender for a concentrated solar power project at the Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park. This is the first time concentrated solar power technology will come up at the solar power park. Read More
its compact design means it can be used in different applications and installed in various locations including on rooftops. The Dutch Army is interested to use it at missions in the world.
This breakthrough in solar technology is the world’s first Concentrated Photovoltaic system (CPV) with a built-in tracking system. THE solar hybrid technology allows for higher system efficiency and less electricity costs.
This unique technology has great potential to help meet global energy demand.
Chile Promotes Non-Conventional Renewable Energies by giving the energy plant order to Abengoa for their Concentrated Power Plant
There are more and more stories of Concentrated Solar Plant (CSP) overruling fossils. The interest on investments in Concentrated Solar Power Plant are artificially high.
In 2014 Chile wrote a tender for a large energy plant. Both fossil and renewable players were invited to subscribe.
Abengoa – one of the largest providers of CSP plants – has won the tender with a combination of PV and CSP to 11.5 cents per kWh. The kWh price is still too high because banks are still asking ‘risk’ interests for the investments. Read More
