2013 is set to be a monumental year for the concentrated solar power (CSP) industry in the United States, with 1312MW of CSP plants set to be commissioned. This will increase the country's total capacity by a staggering 120%, to 1889MW, making the United States a world leader in operational CSP plants.

Jack Ahearne, Global Events Director at CSP Today, said at the opening of nominations that "CSP Today is excited to launch these highly regarded awards which will celebrate the significant progress that has been made by the CSP industry in the US. I am particularly excited to launch the CSP Dispatchability Solution Award, which will highlight the important steps being taken to improve the thermal energy storage capability of CSP, a significant feature that will drive projects forward for years to come".

All eyes will be on the CSP Today USA 2013 Awards when the entry for nominations closes on 19 April and the finalists are announced on 1 May.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
