Webinar: Concentrating Solar Power: Clean Power on Demand 24/7
Thanks to its ability to store energy for days with minimal loses, CSP can provide the flexibility and dispatchability that electricity systems need to effectively incorporate a high share of variable renewable energy from PV and Wind. By combining low-cost variable renewables such as solar PV and wind power with CSP plants, in areas with high direct normal irradiance, overall system costs can be minimized and the benefits of locally sourced and produce renewable electricity maximized.
In this webinar, experts from the World Bank and IRENA will draw upon the findings of their brand-new report “Concentrating Solar Power: Clean Power on Demand 24/7” to analyze the role of CSP in energy systems. Comments on prospects for future development of CSP will be heard from Tunisia’s Ministry of Industry, Energy and Mines and from the Madrid-based Protermosolar industry association. The webinar will take place on 3 Februay 2021 from 08:00 to 14:00 (CET).
