Light after a difficult year for CSP

Cutting-edge research institutions, leading international companies and major stakeholders are coming together in the only technical-focused CSP event this year CSP Today Enhanced Plant Engineering 2013 (12-13 November, Sevilla).

After a difficult year for CSP, with major regulation changes, project delays and increasing competition from other renewable energies, cutting-edge research institutions like CIEMAT, DLR, CSIRO, ENEA and CENER, leading international companies such as ACS-Cobra, E.On, Areva, SolarReserve and TSK will be meeting to make CSP plants competitive across international markets and solve common technical challenges.

It will be a unique opportunity to connect and hear from experienced plant directors, O&M managers, leading engineering and technical experts. Francisco Lpez, R&D manager at Magtel mentioned that "it will be an excellent opportunity for attendees to learn the key aspects of the research and technological development in CSP and various innovative techniques for predictive maintenance, as well as hybridization with biomass possibilities of this technology".

Case studies, O&M data and strategies to design, build and operate a more competitive plant will be showcased by expert speakers. "We can say that the design tools are useful not only to design and optimize commercial plants but also to assess the impact of possible improvements in the final price of energy. Examples will be shown during the presentation" said Marcelino Snchez, Director of Solar Thermal Energy Department at CENER.
