Description

SolarReserve - CSP with molten salt energy storage technology

SolarReserve is a leading global developer of utility-scale solar power projects headquartered in California, USA with offices in Africa, the Asia-Pacific region, Middle East and Europe. The company has commercialised a proprietary advanced solar thermal technology with integrated energy storage that enables firm, fully dispatchable, non-intermittent electricity to be generated from the sun, day or night. SolarReserve has successfully financed and constructed more than US$1.8 billion of large scale solar projects worldwide, with development and long-term power contracts for 482 megawatts of solar projects. Daniel will discuss SolarReserve Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) with molten salt energy storage technology, its operational Crescent Dunes project and provide an update on SolarReserve’s plans to build the Aurora Solar Energy Project in Port Augusta, the first of a number of projects planned for South Australia.
