Webinar: Dispatchable solar energy 24/7 – The Case of Bokpoort CSP plant in South Africa

December 15, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Bokpoort CSP plant (50 MW, 9.3 hours of thermal storage) has recently achieved 13 days of continuous operation, showing that solar power backed up with thermal energy storage can provide dispatchable renewable power on demand.

This is important news for countries trying to increase the share of renewable energy in the energy mix whilst enhancing the reliability of supply. Unlike many sources of renewable energy, CSP with thermal energy storage is available to provide power whenever demand requires it, even at night or during cloudy periods.

In this webinar, experts in CSP will provide in-depth insights into how it is possible for this technology to reliably provide clean energy over long periods of time.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn more about the operation of CSP plants with thermal energy storage to provide clean energy 24/7
  • Find out how CSP with thermal storage complements PV by minimizing curtailment and allowing renewables to take a larger share of the energy mix
  • Get an insider’s view into the development of CSP technology and how it can contribute to provide clean, affordable, and secure energy in places with high levels of direct normal irradiation
