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.

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
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.

How concentrating Solar Thermal Power Plants Work? The Concentrated solar thermal Power plant produces electricity from the heat from sun’s rays. It’s an effective source of large-scale energy production. Firstly a solar farm is made up of heliostats. These are computer controlled mirrors which follow the movement of the sun in order to best reflect its rays towards a central point throughout the day. A solar farm can include from several hundred to several thousand heliostats which communicate with each other over wifi in order to optimize their yield. These heliostats reflect and concentrate sunlight onto a large heat exchanger called receiver that sits on top of a tower which located in the center of the solar farm. Within the receiver, fluid flows through the piping that forms the e...
In the fast technology growing world, the abillity to be flexible yet fast is a must. Here you see a video of us TIG welding stainless steel receiver pipes for a CSP plant. The proces was optimized to be semi automated so that we could produce the same quality through out almost 5km of stainless, yet maintaining a high pace.
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.

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.

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
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.

Solar Thermal technologies capture the heat energy from the sun and use it for heating and/or the production of electricity. Learn more about solar thermal and all types of energy at www.studentenergy.org
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.
