*Global CSP Project Updates*
COVID-19 has impacted millions of organisations around the world, ‘the
world’s largest CSP’ build has maintained progress amidst challenging
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.
Shouhang Yumen 100MW Molten Salt Tower CSP Project is currently well prepared to start construction. Early-stage documents have been approved, and the optimization work of receiver tower design is to be completed, the tower building is supposed to be started very soon by the end of this month.
This is one of the latest milestones in the construction of the solar thermal project being carried out by Acciona and Abengoa in the Atacama desert (Chile) and owned by EIG Global Energy Partners. Weighing 2,300 tons, this highly complex piece will concentrate the solar radiation projected from the 10,600 heliostats surrounding the tower.
*CSP Market & Study Share*
As a dispute over failures at the Crescent Dunes tower plant in Nevada rumbles through US law courts, new findings on global CSP performance could help boost investor confidence in the sector. The US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has studied 90 CSP projects, including Crescent Dunes, and will publish its findings in the coming weeks.
Swedish Energy Agency has granted € 800 000 in co-financing to
Absolicon's demonstration plant for large-scale solar heating. The plant
will be Europe's largest solar field with small concentrating parabolic
collectors connected to district heating and can operate up to 160 °C
welcomes and supports the endeavour of the European Commission bringing
together the Green Deal and the Recovery Plan. This initiative of the
Commission constitutes a strong action framework impacting the depth and
pace of the decarbonisation of the electricity, industry, and transport
sectors. The European Solar Industry is ready to support it towards the
deployment of innovative multi-technologies solutions, optimising
investments and funding.
*CSP Industry and Company News*
Power, a leading developer, owner, and operator of power generation and
water desalination plants recently announced the completion of the
transaction to introduce Silk Road Fund as a partner and a 49% shareholder in ACWA Power Renewable Energy Holding Ltd (ACWA Power RenewCo).
GlassPoint, a venture capital-funded startup that targeted solar enhanced oil recovery (EOR), has gone into liquidation. The company was going to use concentrated solar arrays housed in glass greenhouses to produce steam at gigawatt scale instead of using natural gas.
Coalition for Energy Efficient Comminution (CEEC), a global non-profit
funded by mining companies, have partnered with the University of
Adelaide’s Institute for Mineral and Energy Resources (IMER) to trial
the use of solar thermal energy to enhance comminution.
Zürich AG aims to cut its CO2 emissions to zero net by 2050. The
coronavirus has done nothing to change this plan. That is why the
company has just entered into a partnership with the young high-tech
enterprise Synhelion SA to support research and development work on
synthetic fuels over the long term.
