The SolarPACES (Solar Power and Chemical Energy Systems) Conference will be held from September 26-29, 2017 in Santiago, Chile.
The Competitive Solar Power Towers project will be presented at event by the partners CENER and EDF.
CENER will deliver the oral presentations:
- Heliostat Structural Optimization: a Study of Wind Load Effects with CFD-FEM Methods
- Experimental Evaluation of Volumetric Solar Absorbers – Ceramic Foam vs. an Innovative Rotary Disc Absorber Concept
EDF will present the abstract "Optimization of a Decoupled Combined Cycle Gas Turbine Integrated in a Modular Multi-Tower Solar Power Plant”.
The preliminary programme is available here.
Furthermore, The first issue of the "H2020 Projects Bulletin on Concentrated Solar Power” was published in May.
The joint Newsletter was launched by a joint initiative of the consortia of the EU projects CAPTure, MinWaterCSP, MOSAIC and WASCOP.
The issue includes updates from the involved European projects in the CSP sector currently.
Find out more about the projects, news and events here.
The main goal of the Competitive Solar Power Towers (CAPTure) project is to significantly reduce costs of concentrated solar power (CSP), in order to pave the way for its deserved competitiveness on the power market.
In order to increase plant efficiencies and reduce levelized cost of electricity (LCOE), the project will develop all relevant components that allow implementing an innovative plant configuration.
