Find out in this animation how GE’s Concentrated Solar Power Plant with Storage works, and how this new technology transforms the heat of the sun into electricity and above all, how it can store it. https://www.gerenewableenergy.com/innovative-solutions/solar-energy/concentrated-solar-power
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. Check out my website http://occamsrazorterrorevents.weebly.com/
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...

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.
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.

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.
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.
In a parabolic trough plant, a set of parabolic-shaped mirrors is set on a structure so they can track the movement of the sun and concentrate solar radiation onto a receiving tube. Inside the tube, a heat-absorbing fluid flows and reaches high temperatures. This fluid transfers the thermal energy into steam that is driven by a turbine to generate electricity. An important feature of this technology is the ability to integrate a thermal storage system to allow the power to be dispatched, thus continuing plant operation under cloud cover or at night.
Seeing a CSP power plant from the air, gives us a very different point of view of a electric generation plant. The CSP plant Helioenergy, located in Ciudad Real in Spain is divided in three parts:The solar field, the power block and the thermal storage system. Enjoy the fly over this beautiful installation.

Frank Sesno reports on the Ivanpah solar thermal plant, a 400 megawatt facility that uses mirrors to reflect sunlight onto energy towers instead of burning coal to make steam.
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
The most advanced solar district heating plant in Denmark consist of a 4,039m2 CSP plant and a 5,972m2 flat panel field to generate a total of 6,082 MWh annually. This covers up to 30% of the district heating plant's (Taars Varmeværk) annual energy demand, without the use of seasonal storage.

South African mining energy company BBEnergy is determined to use the blazing African sun to generate heat for industrial processes used in mining, such as gold elution and absorption chilling. The company has commissioned its demonstration linear Fresnel concentrated solar thermal plant that uses the sun's energy to heat up pressurised water in tubes, which can be injected directly into industrial hot water or steam applications, either to reduce electricity consumption or replace electrically generated heat used in mining processes. BBEnergy CEO Dr Steven Bluhm explains about the locally designed and made renewable energy plant. BBEnergy CEO Dr Steven Bluhm: Most of our applications come from the mining industry as a first position. I believe there are lots of applications for process...
From towers to dishes to linear mirrors to troughs, concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies reflect and collect solar heat to generate electricity. A single CSP plant can generate enough power for about 90,000 homes. This video explains what CSP is, how it works, and how systems like parabolic troughs produce renewable power.
