*Global CSP Project Updates*
During the webinar named “DEWA’s 700MW CSP project update” held on March 25 last month, representatives from the Owner ACWA Power and Parabolic Trough Technology Provider Abengoa shared the latest information on Dubai 700MW concentrated solar power project, which is included in the 950MW Noor Energy 1 CSP-PV solar power project
The development of the Cerro Dominador thermosolar project met a new milestone: to finish smelting 46,000 tons of molten salts from the Atacama desert for the operation of what will be the first generation Solar Power Concentration (CSP) generation plant in Latin America.
Gezhouba Group International Engineering Co., Ltd, a
core member of China Energy Engineering Group Co., Ltd., signed a USD
500 million EPC contract with CPL Company in Bangkok, capital of
Thailand. CGGC will be responsible for execution of the Changwat Khon
Kaen 90MW CSP-PV Solar Power Plant in Thailand.
Supcon Solar Technology Co., Ltd., a leading
CSP project developer and EPC contractor in China told CSP Focus that
the Huanghe Hydropower Development 135MW Molten Salt
Tower Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Project was already transferred to SUPCON and would be restarted
On March 27th, 2020, China Shipbuilding New Power Co., Ltd (shorted as CSNP) signed the Agreement to invest and develop its 1GW concentrating solar power (CSP) and storage project with Chayouzhongqi government.
CSNP, a Chinese state-owned enterprise with strong commitment in CSP, plans to invest CNY 25 billion to build this 1GW CSP + Storage project in Chayouzhongqi, Inner Mongolia, Northwest China.
*CSP Market & Study Share*
Synhelion’s long-term 100% solar fuel technology developed out of solar fuels research at ETH Zurich in Switzerland to manufacture jet fuel (kerosene) from carbon dioxide and water captured from air, and is based on solar thermochemistry using heat as the energy input for producing the syngas, which is subsequently converted into liquid fuels.
Resources has secured A$3 million from the Australian Renewable Energy
Agency (ARENA) to conduct a feasibility study for a pilot Concentrated
Solar Power plant that uses water as storage medium.
Shams, one of the world’s largest concentrated solar power plants, continues to significantly contribute to the UAE’s clean energy transition, and is helping the country prepare for the next 50 years
*CSP Industry and Company News*
New and Renewable Energy Authority (NREA) is studying requests to build
power plants at a total capacity of 6.34GW, of which 2.75GW projects
are by the private sector.
An optimal power system portfolio for the US state of California that would drive the world’s fifth largest economy towards greenhouse gas reduction goals for 2030 and then to zero carbon by 2040, includes 1GW of long duration energy storage.
Spanish power demand in March fell by 4.6% on a year ago to 20.9 TWh, as tightening coronavirus restrictions wiped out much of the country’s industrial demand. Adjusted for seasonal differences, demand slumped by 6.3% on a year ago. Spain’s CSP fleet represented 1.2% of power generation, compared with 2.4% in March 2019.
Morocco’s 800 MW solar hybrid project at Midelt will be the first solar project in the world to include thermal (heat) storage of PV (Photovoltaic) as well as CSP (Concentrated Solar Power). Midelt’s first-of-a-kind hybrid solar and shared storage project will deliver dispatchable solar at 7 cents per kWh.
