Overview: Can the use of Thermal Storage Systems (TES) improve the efficiency and economics of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)

With increasing environmental concerns and greenhouse effects, almost every country is looking for ways to mitigate these concerns. Solar energy reaching the Earth’s surface provides an energy supply potential surpassing the power consumption of our civilization by three orders of magnitude. Even though solar energy seems to be our future, one of the current limitations in use of the solar thermal energy is that it is only available when there is sunlight, preventing solar-generated electricity from being produced during cloudy periods or overnight. Technologies that can store solar thermal energy and discharge it on demand to meet user needs will help to make solar energy [...]

Concentrating Solar Power Systems Market – Energy News Analysis 2015

WinterGreen Research announces that it has published a new study Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) Systems Market, Shares, Strategies and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2014 to 2020. The 2014 study has 436 pages, 190 tables and figures. Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) integrates molten salt storage technologies and leverages the existing steam electrical power generating capacity.

The concentrated solar power market is set to explode despite environmental objections to the technology. The latest CSP launch, Ivanpah solar electric generating system is an engineering marvel that delivers on the full promise of solar energy. [...]

Cost savings and efficiency with trigeneration systems

George Kenich – Guest Lecturer, Harvard University

In the Persian Gulf countries, 70% of energy consumed is used in cooling systems. It is also estimated that this figure will triple by 2030. The use of cogeneration is therefore becoming essential in order to produce energy efficiently and generate huge savings.

Conserving fossil fuels: Photovoltaic-Diesel Hybrid systems on the rise

Traditional diesel generators, widely used across the globe, are now being complemented by photovoltaics in new markets and applications. Solar-diesel hybrid systems already represent profitable alternatives, particularly for large-scale industrial users in remote, yet sunny, regions. From June 9–12, 2015, the Off-Grid Platform at Intersolar Europe in Munich presents an overview of applications and markets for off-grid photovoltaics.

In remote regions, photovoltaic-diesel hybrid systems are increasingly replacing power generation solely from fossil fuels. Despite sinking oil prices, worldwide demand for power from photovoltaics (PV) is rising. The reason for this is that PV [...]
