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.

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...

CPVRS is a revolutionary CPV system created by Valldoreix Greenpower (VGP), a company dedicated to renewable energies and specialized in solar energy. A key feature of the CPVRS technology is its ability to optimize logistics and simplify assembly tasks, enabling an innovative decentralized production process and a new business model. www.cpvrs.com
Better solar power will mean more energy and more lithium needed! Uploaded on Nov 14, 2010 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.

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. For more information on the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's CSP research, see the Solar Energy Technology Program's Concentrating Solar Power Web page at http://www1.eere.energy.gov/solar/csp_program.html.

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. Music excerpt by Norm Appel
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 uses the sun’s rays to create thermal energy that is used to produce electricity, then store it for use when it’s needed. A SunShot Initiative project with Sandia National Laboratories is perfecting new technology that allows heat to be stored at higher temperatures, improving the efficiency of concentrating solar power plants and allowing utilities to provide customers with clean energy even after the sun has set.

Check out this KickStarter Fundraising Project at: http://kck.st/12NAmCc RUNS UNTIL JULY 30. This project will build a VILLAGE-SCALE or COMMERCIAL-SCALE Concentrated Solar Heat Collector, using materials available worldwide, and without specialized tools or training. We will document every step to build it, and make the video available to you, and the world, Free on the web and DVD! The end product could provide the heat for bakeries, coffee roasters, distillation, year round greenhouses, food drying, and more. Over 40,000 views on my earlier, smaller project, being made on 6 continents! Help make this VILLAGE-SCALE project video go viral! 'Become the change you want for the world...' Thank You!

I use a large fresnel lens to test the effect of concentrated sunlight on a solar cell. To keep the solar cell cool I immerse it in mineral oil. I measure the voltage, current and the temperature. But I also test it without the cooling and sure enough, the solar cell is destroyed by the concentrated sunlight. The fresnel lens is one I got from a rear projection TV. See also my video all about fresnel lenses, "Fresnel lens - what is it, testing focal length, solar heat generated": http://youtu.be/11n0ZaZMj3A To watch my video about the fresnel lens combined with a mirror, "Fresnel lens and mirror solar cooker cast iron pan", see: http://youtu.be/hWDkCnpLRPA And for the video "What is Fire" watch: http://youtu.be/V3sV8t_HUdc In this one I use a small fresnel lens to concentrated sunlight...

This is Part 2 of our Concentrated Solar Power experiment. This time, we used 731 mirrors instead of 20 larger mirrors, we demonstrated the power of this device by burning wood and melting plastic or to use as a solar oven.

Solar energy is the most abundant renewable resource on earth and is expected to contribute strongly to the future global energy mix Concentrating solar power had a difficult market start compared to other renewable technologies, leading to a total global capacity of only 5 GW today after more than a decade of deployment. A comprehensive global empirical study identifies distinct deployment phases, with high learning rates exceeding 25% over the past 5 years.
The plant uses the concentrating solar thermal collectors designed by CSP-F spa, the Company that develops solar systems and solutions for the production of industrial process heat, solar cooling and electric power. The CSP-F collectors are based on the reflection of solar irradiation through Fresnel flat mirrors. The solar beams are directed to a receiving pipe capable of heating up the water flowing inside. The water transforms into high temperature and pressure steam. The steam integrates the supply of heat and reduce the need of oil gas. Savings in energetic costs, less pollution, reduced environmental impact: the best energetic strategy for a high quality and sustainable industrial production. Yearly, with the CSP plant’s production of steam, the dairy will save more than 50,000 litre...

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.
