  • Concentrated Solar Power Simple Explanation

    In this video, I give a simple explanation on how Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) works. This is the type of solar power that uses thousands of mirrors over hundreds of acres to reflect sunlight on a tower. This heats up molten salt to over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The heated molten salt then creates steam from water, driving a steam turbine to produce electricity. CSP plants are used in primarily in the western United States. A big advantage of CSP is that power can produced at night time for at least several hours after the sun has set. ---- Here is my DIY Solar and Wind book that was published on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1508454310/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=1508454310&linkCode=as2&tag=erilaysyoucha-20&linkId=URNF3DPORKY4M5YR Barnes...

A SunShot Initiative project with Sandia National Laboratories is perfecting new technology that allows heat to be stored at higher temperatures, improving the efficiency of concentrating solar power plants and allowing utilities to provide customers with clean energy even after the sun has set.

The new site near the city of Ouarzazate -- famous as a filming location for Hollywood blockbusters like "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Gladiator" -- could produce enough energy to power over one million homes by 2018 and reduce carbon emissions by an estimated 760,000 tons per year, according to the Climate Investment Funds Mirrors focus the sun's light and heat up a liquid, which, when mixed with water, reaches around 400 degree Celsius. The steam produced from this process drives a turbine and generates electrical power. A cylinder full of salt is melted by the warmth from the mirrors during the day, and stays hot enough at night to provide up to three hours of power, according to World Bank, who partially financed construction of the plant through a $97 million loan from the Clean Technology Fund.

Technology Game-Changer: 24/7 Low-Cost Electricity from Solar Energy This is a lecture about 247Solar - Breakthrough Technology. A lower-cost, next-generation concentrating solar power (CSP) system to replace expensive first generation CSP technology. It claims to produce electricity 24/7 at costs competitive with all other forms of power generation (10 cents/kWh initially, 6 cents with factory production). It also eliminates most disadvantages of conventional CSP, PV, wind, and traditional power called the 247Solar Plant™. It was developed with funding support from the US Department of Energy by Wilson Solarpower Corp, a spinoff of MIT. Critical, patented inventions broke through CSP’s traditional complexity and cost barriers to creating a simplified, low-maintenance design with higher operating efficiencies. Its air system operates at atmospheric pressure, requires no scarce water to drive steam turbines, and eliminates the cost and complexities of molten salts and heat transfer oils. Presenter: Mr. Bruce N. Anderson, Co-founder, CEO of 247SOLAR, Member, MIT Corporation (MIT, USA - Board of Trustees) His accomplishments in the field of renewable energy are many, far too numerous to mention, and particularly in solar energy development. Began the solar career in 1973 with Masters degree at MIT. 1980 Advisory Board Member, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). 1982 FirstLifetime Achievement Award,” American Solar Energy Society. The author of 5 solar energy books. Twice testified to US Congress. Bruce served as the 247SOLAR's start-up CEO in 2001 and then again beginning in 2005. He was also responsible for initiating and managing co-development agreements with industrial partners including Wartsila, Alcoa, Praxair, French Petroleum Institute, Saint-Gobain, Corning, CoorsTek, and Oak Ridge National Labs. In 2008, he co-invented the 247SOLAR's CSP technology and initiated and led its strategic reorientation to focus on solar. Recording date: 9th August 2017

The government has given the green light to a 700-MW addition to the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, New Atlas reported. The solar park is located about 50 kms south of Dubai, with the first phase inaugurated back in 2013, according to New Atlas. It currently has 2.3 million photovoltaic solar panels with a 200-MW capacity. Capacity is expected to grow to 5,000 MW by 2030. Developers say the park will eventually cover 214 sq km with a 260-m solar tower taking center stage. The solar plant produces power by using lenses and reflectors to concentrate sunlight in order to heat fluids, which then in turn produce steam to drive a turbine. An advantage to this type of solar system is that it's more flexible because energy can be stored as heat and used as needed. A drawback is that they are more expensive than photovoltaic solar plants. Construction of the new extension is set to begin in 2020. The contract was awarded to a consortium of Saudi Arabia's ACWA Power and Shanghai Electric. RUNDOWN SHOWS: 1. A concentrated solar power receiver tower and surrounding solar panels 2.

The Noor Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) complex is Morocco’s first utility-scale solar energy complex and serves as a critical step of the Moroccan Solar Energy Program. The three-plant Noor-Ouarzazate CSP complex seeks to contribute to the commercial viability of CSP and its potential throughout Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Operating with an installed capacity of 160 megawatts (MW), the first phase expects 240,000 tons of CO₂ emissions to be avoided per annum. By 2018, the three-phase project will be the largest of its kind in the world with over 500 MW of installed capacity, and will produce enough clean power to meet the needs of 1.1 million Moroccans.

Beyond Zero Emissions intends to transform Australia from a 19th century fossil fuel based economy to a 21st century renewable powered clean tech economy with no carbon emissions. Sharon Shostak met up with some local residents/BZE volunteers who have taken the initiative to build a model to demonstrate a concentrating solar thermal plant, a technology beginning to proliferate in many countries but sadly remiss in Australia.
