Hallelujah! Finally, a 150MW concentrated solar thermal plant in Port Augusta built by Solar Reserve (also involved in Gemasolar), for just $78/MWh!!! http://reneweconomy.com.au/giant-solar-tower-to-provide-all-s-a-government-electricity-needs-72106/ I have another interest now - staged terror.

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...

From towers to dishes to linear mirrors to troughs, concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies reflect and collect solar heat to generate electricity. A single CSP plant can generate enough power for about 90,000 homes. This video explains what CSP is, how it works, and how systems like parabolic troughs produce renewable power. For more information on the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's CSP research, see the Solar Energy Technology Program's Concentrating Solar Power Web page at http://www1.eere.energy.gov/solar/csp_program.html.
Concentrating solar power uses the sun’s rays to create thermal energy that is used to produce electricity, then store it for use when it’s needed. 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.

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.

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.
An animation of continuous power production from Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) used together with SaltX EnerStore. Solar thermal energy from CSP collectors is stored during daytime in EnerStore and used during night-time for power production. By this, continuous "day and night" power production, is made possible with a CSP plant where SaltX EnerStore is included. EnerStore facts: - Scaleable thermal energy storage - High energy density - Low level of losses - Cost effective - No maintenance heating - Environmentally friendly - Non-toxic
The feasibility of concentrating solar power (CSP) as a realistic, cost-effective and clean alternative to fossil fuels, is set to be given a major boost with the launch of a pilot CSP facility at Stellenbosch University (SU) demonstrating a new solar collector system. Situated at Mariendahl, an experimental farm of SU, the Helio100 pilot facility is to be officially opened at the end of September. The Helio100 technology is designed for CSP plants as small as 100kW – enough power to provide electricity for about 30 South African households. Sponsored by the Technology Innovation Agency (TIA), Helio100 is being developed by the Solar Thermal Energy Research Group (STERG) at SU – the first university research group in the country to focus on solar thermal energy research –and the proje...
Solar energy is the most abundant renewable resource on earth and is expected to contribute strongly to the future global energy mix 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.

Better solar power will mean more energy and more lithium needed! Uploaded on Nov 14, 2010 Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam. The concentrated heat is then used as a heat source for a conventional power plant.

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES — The Dubai government has approved an extension to the world's largest single-site solar farm. 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 ...

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 highe...
The plant uses the concentrating solar thermal collectors designed by CSP-F spa, the Company that develops solar systems and solutions for the production of industrial process heat, solar cooling and electric power. The CSP-F collectors are based on the reflection of solar irradiation through Fresnel flat mirrors. The solar beams are directed to a receiving pipe capable of heating up the water flowing inside. The water transforms into high temperature and pressure steam. The steam integrates the supply of heat and reduce the need of oil gas. Savings in energetic costs, less pollution, reduced environmental impact: the best energetic strategy for a high quality and sustainable industrial production. Yearly, with the CSP plant’s production of steam, the dairy will save more than 50,000 litre...

James may visits the concentrated solar thermal tower plant in Seville, Spain. This plant produces 10MW of electricity. Since this was filmed larger solar tower plants have been built in Spain and have been combined with molten salt storage to create baseload solar power. This technology can replace coal, gas and nuclear with this zero emission renewable energy power in places like Africa, Australia and parts of America that receive good solar radiation
