NO.4-5-1


This page provides information on ISCC Morocco, a concentrating solar power (CSP) project, with data organized by background, participants, and power plant configuration. Integrated Solar Combined-Cycle (ISCC) technology combines the benefits of solar energy with the benefits of a combined cycle. The solar resource partially substitutes the fossil fuel. The project consist of a 470 MWe hybrid power plant composed of a combined cycle and a 20 MWe solar thermal system.

  • CIF $945 million investing concentrated solar power in Morocco, South Africa and Chile

    Concentrated solar power (CSP) holds vast potential due to its ability to provide reliable, utility-scale power even when the sun is not shining. CSP is such a promising technology that the International Energy Agency estimates that up to 11 percent of the world’s electricity generation in 2050 could come from CSP.

  • First heliostat field made in Brazil

    The University of São Paulo in Pirassununga (see photo) is about to get its own field of heliostats on campus. Once completed, the sea of mirrors will focus sunlight onto a receiver connected to an Organic Rankine Cycle system. The heat transfer fluid will be ambient air. The ORC turbine ‘waste’, hot water at 90 °C, will be directed to a nearby abattoir. The demonstration plant is part of SMILE, which is short for Solar-Hybrid Microturbine Systems for Cogeneration in Agro-Industrial Electricity and Heat Production.

  • How California's Winter Months Are Making CSP Look Bad

    Winter clouds may help the Mojave Desert bloom but they can be a burden for concentratedsolarpower (CSP), Energy Information Administration figures show.

  • DOE announces $105.5 million in funding to advance solar energy technologies

    U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry announced up to $105.5 million to support America’s continued leadership in energy innovation through solar technology. Under the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO), DOE will fund about 70 projects to advance both solar PV and concentrating solar thermal power (CSP) technologies, as well as facilitate the secure integration of those technologies into the nation’s electricity grid. Funding will also support efforts that prepare the workforce for the solar industry’s future needs.
