Looking at 4 variable generation technologies (wind, single-axis tracking PV, CSP with no storage, & CSP with thermal energy storage), the authors look at the benefits of mitigation measures.
Germany’s Fraunhofer institute recently released a report showing continued levalized cost of energy (LCOE) declines for photovoltaic (PV) technologies in Germany and for concentrating solar power (CSP) and concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) technologies in higher insolation areas outside of Germany.
A recent NREL report finds that concentrating solar power systems (CSP) with thermal energy storage (TES) provide value to the grid that is $30/MWh to $51/MWh higher than conventional base load generation. The analysis focused on grid performance in California under a 33% renewable scenario.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative will hold a 2013 Program Review for its Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) program April 23-25, 2013 at the Hilton Phoenix East/Mesa near Phoenix, Arizona.
At high penetration of solar generation there are a number of challenges to economically integrating this variable and uncertain resource.
Concentrating solar power (CSP) deployed with thermal energy storage (TES) provides a dispatchable source of renewable energy.
Over the last several years, solar energy technologies have been, or are in the process of being, deployed at unprecedented levels.
This report is a summary of the finance trends for small-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) projects (PV <1 MW), large-scale PV projects (PV greater than or equal to 1 MW), and concentrated solar power projects as reported in the National Renewable
WASHINGTON - Today, the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce approved H.R. 6213, the No More Solyndras Act, by a vote of 29-19. Rhone Resch, President and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association® (SEIA®), issued the following statement on the legislation:
