Abstract: Hydrogen fuel is a valuable tool to achieve the energy transition process, and according to the 2050 net zero emissions scenario its demand is expected to increase by more than 530 Mt H2. This article discusses several routes available to produce hydrogen fuel, with a special focus on solar thermochemical cycles for Water Splitting […]
Known then as Supcon Solar, Cosin Solar developed two tower projects in China’s pilot CSP (Concentrated Solar Power) program; as technology and core equipment provider on PowerChina Gonghe 50MW tower CSP, and developing the Supcon Delingha 50MW tower CSP. These were two of the five tower CSP demonstration projects that succeeded in China’s pilot program. […]
The Solar Energy Technologies Office Fiscal Year 2021 Photovoltaics and Concentrating Solar-Thermal Power Funding Program (SETO FY21 PV and CSP) funds research and development projects that advance PV and CSP to help eliminate carbon dioxide emissions from the energy sector. On October 12, 2021, SETO announced that 40 projects were awarded $40 million. Twenty-five of those projects will receive almost $33 million to research and develop CSP technologies that help […]
The 2010 SolarPACES Lifetime Award Winner Prof. Valeriano Ruiz passed away yesterday. From SolarPACES, we would like to express our sympathy and condolences to his family and friends. More information on Protermosolar’s site: https://cutt.ly/IzEDYgo
Under a new integrated resource plan published by the government in December 2020, Botswana plans to build 200 MW of CSP capacity by 2026. The procurement process will start this year, it said. The plan, which received the backing of Botswana and Namibia government officials and the World Bank, proposed a phased approach to large-scale […]
SENER is about to start the final tests at Noor Ouarzazate III, after completing the first synchronization of the 150 MW Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plant to the Moroccan grid. With these milestones, SENER starts the last phase before the plant’s commercial operation and final delivery to the client. This plant is the second unit designed and built […]
A lot is riding on Morocco’s Noor III Tower solar with molten salts storage is a very young technology. Only one such power plant is operating globally at over 100 MW, utility-scale. The 2nd is now about to start. At 150 MW, Noor III will be only the second-ever utility-scale (over 100 MW) CSP tower in the world […]
The moment the market received a signal that a large number of gigawatts would be tendered, “costs came crashing down. That is what CSP arguably needs, and I think we’re not that far from that point.” CSP Today reports: The tender process favored by the likes of Chile and Dubai has done more than anything […]
Read here about exactly how Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) works producing electricity from a power block thermally the way a conventional power plant does – except that sunlight is the fuel. PV (Photovoltaic) solar works in a completely different way from CSP All electricity is basically just electrons moving down a wire. Michael Faraday discovered in 1831 […]
Abengoa Concentrating solar power had a difficult market start compared to other renewable technologies, leading to a total global capacity of only 5 GW today after more than a decade of deployment. A comprehensive global empirical study identifies distinct deployment phases, with high learning rates exceeding 25% over the past 5 years. Read the full […]
