The BIGGEST Concentrated Solar Plant in the World is in Africa I Morocco

Africa and in particular, North Africa has tremendous potential for solar generation. Imagine a solar plant the size of 3500 football pitches.. Well this is not fiction, it is reality. This is Morocco, the home of the largest concentrated solar plant in the World, the Noor Solar Power Station The solar plant sits on over […]

Stirling Engine Powered by Fresnel Lens/Concentrated Solar Power

Hi Gang! As promised, I tried out my Stirling engine with my fresnel lens, basically powering it with concentrated solar power. And as you’ll see, it worked very well. For those not familiar with fresnel lenses, they take a large area of sunlight, in this case 2 feet by 4 feet, and focus, or concentrate […]

Energy 101: Concentrating Solar Power

bjbj Take the natural heat from the sun, reflect it against a mirror, focus all of that heat on one area, send it through a power system, and you’ve got a renewable way of making electricity. It’s called concentrating solar power, or CSP. Now, there are many types of CSP technologies. Towers, dishes, linear mirrors, […]

MSc. Solar Energy Engineering

First of all you always have to look up: where are the future topics which are interesting? And renewables definitely! This will change the world but we have to understand that we have to deliver or develop the technology for that and that’s our course about. The special thing about Freiburg is that it’s a […]

SkyFuel + US Digital: Highlighting Concentrated Solar Power

I think the solar production of electricity is very important because it’s a renewable method for making electricity than we rely upon every day. This comes from a source that’s almost always available to us, the sun. In countries that are developing a middle class like China and India the demand for electricity is growing […]

How Linear Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Plants Work (Animation)

– [Instructor] Hi, John here. In this video, we’re gonna look at a Linear Concentrator. It’s a type of solar power station where we use the heat from the sun’s rays to generate electricity. We’re gonna have a look at all of the main components within the system and we’re gonna explain to you how […]

Australia’s Energy Security – 24/7 Concentrated Solar Thermal Power plus Molten Salt Storage (CSP+)

The problem with renewable energy is the lack of continuous supply: solar power only when it’s sunny, wind power only when it’s windy and wave power when the sea’s not too rough. I’m Russell Beard and I’ve come to the south of Spain to visit Gemasolar, the first solar power-tower station that can produce electricity […]

Myths & Misconceptions of Solar Energy: Part 1

Hello, ladies and gentlemen. I’m very happy to welcome you to today’s session on the first part of the solar myths. I would like to thank the International Solar Alliance and the Clean Energy Solutions Center for facilitating this webinar series. Some background for me. Before I joined Factor in 2010, I had been director […]

Israel’s renewable energy revolution will build bridges, says Energix CEO | The New Economy

The New Economy: Renewable energy is a growing industry in Israel, and is important also from a strategic viewpoint. Being able to produce energy from clean sources would liberate the country from its political and financial dependence on its neighbours’ oil and natural gas supplies. With me to discuss how the sector is developing is […]

Solar Energy Potential – Sustainable Energy – TU Delft

Hello everybody in this video we will make look at potential of solar energy, one of the most flexible and fastest growing technologies available today. Solar panels or Photovoltaic panels can be scaled from the size of a tablet, to the size of many football fields. Photovoltaics technologies convert the energy in sun light in […]
