*Global CSP Project Updates*





Dubai's CSP energy build continues progress amidst COVID-19


While COVID-19 has impacted millions of organisations around the world, ‘the world’s largest CSP’ build has maintained progress amidst challenging times.


Morocco Combines PV With Thermal Storage At 800 MW Midelt CSP Project


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 Concentrated Solar Power Project starts building its tower this week


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.




The Cerro Dominador concentrated solar power plant, the first in Chile and Latin America, installs its solar receiver at a height of 220 meters


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.


DEWA signs PPA for 900 MW 5th phase of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park


China invents anti-cloud tools at target-beating CSP tower


NWEPDI signed engineering contract for Shouhang Yumen 100MW Molten Salt Tower CSP Project

New CSP report offers learnings from Crescent Dunes flop


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.



Absolicon builds Europe's largest solar thermal field for district heating with small concentrated parabolic troughs


The 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 working temperature.



The Concentrated Solar Thermal Industry supports the Green Recovery Plan through a truly smart sector integration


ESTELA 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.


Demand for electrical energy in Spain falls 17.3% in April


COVID19 and EU's Green Deal: Has the Time Come for Mediterranean Clean Energy?


Solar Energy Center developed LCOE Map for installation of CSP plants in Chile


Chile could build Concentrated Solar Power at $76/MWh

China's Silk Road Fund closes 49% stake buy in ACWA Power RenewCo


ACWA 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 Shell-funded solar enhanced-oil-recovery startup, is in liquidation


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.



Researchers, industry partner to trial solar thermal energy to enhance comminution


The 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.



Switzerland's International Airport to Buy Synhelion’s First Solar Fuel


Flughafen 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.
