*Global CSP Project Updates*



China Connects Luneng, its 5th CSP Project in Climate Push


Luneng’s 50 Megawatt (MW) tower Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) project with 12 hours of thermal energy storage (in molten salts) connected to the Chinese grid on September 20th, becoming the 5th large-scale CSP plant in China.



China operates the 4th CSP demo--Power China Gonghe 50MW Molten Salt Tower CSP Project  successfully connected to the grid


Power China Gonghe 50MW Molten Salt Tower CSP Project was successfully connected to the grid on September 19, becoming the fourth large scale CSP project in China after CGN Delingha 50MW Trough Project, Shouhang Dunhuang 100MW MS Tower Plant, and SUPCON Delingha 50MW MS Tower Project.



DEWA reviews construction of 4th phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park


Phase Four of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park 30% complete says DEWA


Construction of Phase Four of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park is progressing at pace and stands at over 30% complete. Once ready, the fourth phase will generate 950 megawatts (MW) at an investment of $4.29bn. The project will include the construction of the world’s tallest 260-metre solar tower and the world’s largest global thermal storage capacity of 15 hours; allowing for energy availability round the clock.



SUNCNIM and Banque des Territoires inaugurated the world's first Fresnel type thermodynamic solar energy plant with energy storage in Llo, Occitania


Llo, Friday September 20, 2019 - Located in Llo in Cerdagne (Eastern Pyrenees), it is the first thermodynamic Fresnel solar energy concentrator with energy storage in the world. With a power output of 9 MWe and thermal energy storage, i.e. the electricity consumption of more than 6,000 homes, the Llo power plant produces electricity both during the day and part of the night.


Abengoa beats Concentrated Solar Power peak hour targets in new plant build record


Last month, Abengoa passed early-phase generation tests at its 100 MW Xina Solar One CSP plant in South Africa in its fastest ever time, achieving guaranteed production targets within 16 months of plant commissioning.


Project a concentrated solar power plant in La Puna, Argentina


The established project will grant the current mode of photovoltaic power generation that is being promoted in Jujuy, a complementary solar thermal system that will allow to produce energy during the 24 hours and provide greater stability to the transmission of the generated electric energy.



Amper wins Dubai 100MW Tower CSP contract with Shanghai Electric Group in Dubai


Shanghai Electric Group has awarded Nervión Industries, a subsidiary of the Amper Group, the construction of salt storage tanks for a solar thermal power plant in Dubai for 13 million dollars (about 11.77 million euros).



Vast Solar closes capital raise to finance Concentrated Solar Power project


Australian concentrated solar power (CSP) company Vast Solar has finalised a capital hike to progress development of its hybrid project that comprises a 30-MW CSP facility with 10 hours of storage and a 20-MW photovoltaic (PV) plant.


Solar Baseload in the Kalahari: Kathu Solar Park


A greenfield concentrated solar power (CSP) project with innovative parabolic trough technology and a molten storage system has revitalized a remote region. But the project is also laudable for its social, economic, and environmental commitment to the unique region.





*CSP Industry and Company News*



6 CSP solar projects with 350MW capacity will be newly built in China this year


CSP Focus predicts that the total capacity of newly-built CSP projects in China this year will be record high. Six commercial projects with total capacity of 350MW will be completed and connected to the grid by the end of 2019. As a matter of fact, Luneng Haixi and Power China Gonghe projects made it just this month.



Shanghai Electric Exhibits Concentrated Solar Power Breakthrough


Shanghai Electric Group, a leading multinational power generation and electrical equipment manufacturing conglomerate, delivered a new wave of smart, connected and green integrated solutions and technological breakthroughs to the 24th World Energy Congress (WEC) held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.


AfDB’s Solar Project Aims at Making Africa a Renewable Power House


African Development Bank (AfDB) has embarked on a highly ambitious solar project to make Africa a renewable power-house, titled “Desert to Power (DtP) Initiative”.


Morocco Lights the Way to More Solar Power Production


Morocco has plans to build a fourth section on the Noor Ouarzazate complex and a second 800 megawatt CSP tower near Midelt, 200 kilometers south of Fez.


Azelio to Partner With Masdar and Khalifa University to Install Concentrated Solar Power Pilot Project at Masdar City


The project aims to test and demonstrate Azelio’s Stirling engine systems and integrated thermal energy storage (TES) solution for renewable energy projects that use photovoltaic solar, concentrated solar power (CSP) and wind energy, or projects that provide off-grid solutions, with the purpose of determining if the technology can be included in current and future renewable energy projects.



Concentrated solar power accounted for 3.5% of electricity in August in Spain


Concentrated Solar Power marks a historical record of generation with 4,269 GWh until September 2019 in Spain


This generation volume is 4.1% higher than the previous record of 2015 (4,102 GWh) and represents 2.67% of the total electricity generated in Spain in the first eight months of the year. In August, the solar thermal input reached about 9% of the generation in a timely manner, with a 2% contribution in the night hours.


SaltX Berlin pilot plant shows very promising results


The Swedish energy storage company SaltX Technology built and deployed a first-of-its-kind energy storage in 2019. The pilot plant, which is based on a nanocoated salt material, confirms a good material performance and a scalable energy storage concept. Furthermore, the large-scale tests showed a promising roundtrip efficiency.
