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...
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.

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.
Sunny Morocco seems like the ideal place to produce solar power. Just north of Marrakech lies the Green Energy Park, where researchers are working on making green energy technology more affordable, as part of Morocco's drive to reduce energy dependency. Euronews' Denis Loctier visited their concentrated solar power (CSP) plant, where he spoke to the coordinator of the EU-funded project, MinWaterCSP, Falk Mohasseb. euronews knowledge brings you a fresh mix of the world's most interesting know-hows, directly from space and sci-tech experts.

A CSP plant is a power plant that produces electrical energy from the solar radiation. The process in this conversion includes several steps. The first one is to capture the radiation. Then, this radiation is converted into thermal energy that produces steam. The third step is to transform this thermal energy into kinetic energy for moving a generator that finally will produce electrical energy. To capture the solar radiation there are different technologies: Parabolic Trough, Central receiver (tower), Fresnel receiver and Parabolic Dish + Stirling engine. This video analyze each one of this technologies, its advantages and disadvantages.
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
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. For additional information visit: www.murraypowerandgeneration.com

Construction progress in October 2016 of Aalborg CSP's 16.6MWt CSP plant that will be integrated with a biomass-fueled Organic Rankine Cycle plant for combined heat and power generation in Denmark . The CSP plant will consist of 40 rows of 125m parabolic trough loops with an aperture area of 26,929m2.

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.

A new clip from the Novatec CSP plant in Spain and DESERTEC Director Dr. Campino (speaking about the potential of DESERTEC in South America). The clip gives detailled insights into the revolutionary technology used in the world's largest Fresnel power plant in Calasparra, Spain. Dr. Campino depicts the many advantages this particular technology offers.
Take an exclusive look at this revolutionary solar energy plant that works day and night.This is the world’s first 110 MW solar thermal power plant with advanced molten salt energy storage, The Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project located in Tonopah, NV. http://www.solarreserve.com/what-we-do/csp-projects/crescent-dunes/
The 100 MW Shams 1 is the largest Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) in the world and the first one of its kind in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA). The plant, located in Abu Dhabi, will produce enough renewable energy to power 20,000 UAE homes.
ACCIONA Energy has connected to the grid the largest concentrating solar power (CSP) plant built in the world in the last 17 years in the State of Nevada (USA). The Nevada Solar One project, with a capacity of 64 MW, was made possible with an investment of €220 million and will provide power to generations to come. The 400-acre facility is located in the desert and creates power for homes farther north in Las Vegas. Projects like the Nevada Solar One reaffirm ACCIONA's commitment to sustainability through its three pillars: economic growth, social progress, and environmental balance.
