The University of Seville, in representation of SOCRTACES consortium, attended the workshop and the discussion session on the topic of “Key elements for the new solar thermal energy plants”. The workshop was held at the Complutense University of Madrid (Spain) on 9th of July 2019.
The workshop was organized within the dissemination actions of the MSLOOP project, which as SOCRATCES is funded in the EUs Horizon 2020 program and it aims to validate a business opportunity consisting of developing a cost effective solar field for CSP Parabolic Trough Power Plants using optimized ternary molten salts as heat transfer fluid with an innovative hybridization system.
The aim of this workshop was to disseminate the projects results and share knowledge between industrial companies, plant owners and researchers related to key elements for the new solar thermal energy plants. Moreover, other H2020 CSP-related project was presented, such as MOSAIC working on esign, manufacture and validate an innovative CSP concept with low implementation costs at the highest plant efficiencies which will reduce the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE). Other of the projects presented was CAPTURE which aims to reduce costs of concentrated solar power (CSP), in order to pave the way for its deserved competitiveness on the power market.
