The Plataforma Solar de Almería (PSA), is the most important research center in the world devoted to solar thermal concentrating technologies, leading international projects and initiatives driven and supported by the European Union. PSA has an international reputation and is classified as a “unique scientific and technical infrastructure” (ICTS)
Heat represents three-quarters of industrial energy demand worldwide, and half of it is of low to medium-high temperature The IEA has just released its report IEA INSIGHTS 2017 Renewable Energy for Industry(pdf) Highlights from the IEA report with relevance for CSP: Activity is accelerating with
Time: 16 Nov, 11:00 CET (Check your local time) ATA Webinar: Solar for commercial and industrial (C&I) heat Sign up to attend Heat and steam generation can be complicated to source for industrial players. In fact, for commercial and industrial (C&I) purposes, the demand for heat is vastly
Solar electricity competitive to power from gas Solar thermal electricity was contracted in 2017 in Dubai for 7.3 $cents/kWh. This plant will combine a 200 MW tower system with a 15 hour thermal energy storage and three times 200 MW parabolic trough systems with more
