Coronavirus cuts Spanish power demand, Concentrated Solar Power share

Protermosolar: The Concentrated Solar Power continues its activity during the coranavirus pandemic in Spain


Spanish power demand in March fell by 4.6% on a year ago to 20.9 TWh, as tightening coronavirus restrictions wiped out much of the country’s industrial demand. Adjusted for seasonal differences, demand slumped by 6.3% on a year ago. Spain’s CSP fleet represented 1.2% of power generation, compared with 2.4% in March 2019.


Morocco Pioneers PV with Thermal Storage at 800 MW Midelt CSP Project


Morocco’s 800 MW solar hybrid project at Midelt will be the first solar project in the world to include thermal (heat) storage of PV (Photovoltaic) as well as CSP (Concentrated Solar Power). Midelt’s first-of-a-kind hybrid solar and shared storage project will deliver dispatchable solar at 7 cents per kWh.
