Joint Activities of CSP projects under Horizon 2020 Call “Low Carbon Energy – CSP”

The European Union is funding several approaches to minimize water consumption in CSP plants and to make CSP technology more efficient.
A group of Horizon projects agreed to communicate jointly their ongoing activities and to disseminate the results of the Concentrated Solar Power projects all financed under the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
These joint activities bring together the different stakeholders and ensure technology transfer and the exchange of experience.

The joint activities are:

  • Joint Workshop of the MinWaterCSP and WASCOP project
    In the Horizon 2020 call topic LCE-02-2015 Developing the next generation of technologies of renewable electricity and heating / cooling” two projects have succeeded: WASCOP and MinWaterCSP. On 29th November 2016, MinWaterCSP and WASCOP collaborated to organise a joint workshop for plant operators, plant owners and service providers to discuss about their solutions to reduce water consumption in the steam cycle and in cleaning, soiling and water treatment in solar fields.
    The one-day workshop was held at the Plataforma solar de Almeria (PSA) in Spain.
