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...

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.

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.
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.

Morocco has switched on what will be the world's largest concentrated solar power plant. The new site near the city of Ouarzazate -- famous as a filming location for Hollywood blockbusters like "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Gladiator" -- could produce enough energy to power over one million homes by 2018 and reduce carbon emissions by an estimated 760,000 tons per year, according to the Climate Investment Funds Mirrors focus the sun's light and heat up a liquid, which, when mixed with water, reaches around 400 degree Celsius. The steam produced from this process drives a turbine and generates electrical power. A cylinder full of salt is melted by the warmth from the mirrors during the day, and stays hot enough at night to provide up to three hours of power, according to World Bank, who par...
Flowserve has developed a proven, vertical turbine pump for molten-salt service. Featuring a global design, this highly engineered utility-grade unit is devised to operate for 30 years in tough environments with the highest levels of reliability and service. This animation reviews the key features and benefits of the Flowserve Molten Salt VTP.
If you find yourself driving through California's Mohave Desert and see these big bright towers you’re looking at the BrightSource solar concentration power plant that doubles as and avian death ray. On about 3,500 acres of land there are giant mirrors that are 163 square feet each and there are 347,000 of them reflecting onto three different 450 foot towers that you can see from the roadside. These towers are actually solar powered steam generators that produce about 1,000 gigawatts per year and can provide electricty to about 140,000 homes each year. Pretty much any bird that flies in the path of the concentrated light get’s cooked mid flight. In fact the plant’s workers say they actually ignite before they hit the ground and report that approximately 1,000 birds die each year. Sourc...

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.

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES — The Dubai government has approved an extension to the world's largest single-site solar farm. The government has given the green light to a 700-MW addition to the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, New Atlas reported. The solar park is located about 50 kms south of Dubai, with the first phase inaugurated back in 2013, according to New Atlas. It currently has 2.3 million photovoltaic solar panels with a 200-MW capacity. Capacity is expected to grow to 5,000 MW by 2030. Developers say the park will eventually cover 214 sq km with a 260-m solar tower taking center stage. The solar plant produces power by using lenses and reflectors to concentrate sunlight in order to heat fluids, which then in turn produce steam to drive a turbine. An advantage ...
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.
