CSP Today Site Visit to NREL- Online registration closes this week

The CSP Today site visit to the CSP facility at NREL on October 29th in Denver has almost sold out of places. This will immediately follow and only be open to delegates of the CSP Yield Optimization Conference (Denver, October 27-28), and registration will close this week.

CSP Today's recent USA conference attracted 500 top solar energy professionals and these events aim to drill down into Project Development and Balance of Plant engineering issues like never before. The site visit to NREL is a vital part of this insightful experience.


The site visit will include tours of:

• Solar Radiation Research Laboratory
• Solar Industrial Mesa Top Area (SIMPTA)
• High Flux Solar Furnace
• Optical Materials Laboratory
• Research Support Facility

On the morning of Friday October 29, delegates will be transported to the NREL site and have the opportunity to tour the facility with CSP staff on hand to questions. Places are very limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis (only open to delegates at this event), and transport will be provided.

The CSP Yield Optimization Conference discusses how to guarantee maximum CSP plant yield through effective Balance of Plant engineering. With key issues being asked by developers and EPCs worldwide, including how electricity delivered will ultimately ensure the fulfilment of your PPA, ensuring your plant configuration is optimized for maximum yield and understanding the impact of location and sizing choice, the 1st CSP Today Yield Optimization Conference, taking place October 27-28 in Denver, will cover these issues in more detail than ever before.

Key presentations include Mitigating Your Risk Through Effective Engineering and Equipment Supply (Eric Svendsen, Foster Wheeler Energia, S.L.U.), Surefire Control Strategies (Peter Tanner, Areva) and Realtime O&M for Solar Thermal Plants (Bob Cable, Acciona Solar Power)

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
