SOLAR CONCENTRA releases “Identifying main lines of research in the Solar Thermal Electricity sector”

SOLAR CONCENTRA has unveiled the paper titled “Identificación de las Principales Líneas de Investigación en el Sector de la Electricidad Termosolar” (Identifying main lines of research in the Solar Thermal Electricity sector) made by the Technology Platform for Concentrating Solar Thermal Power jointly with AICIA (Association for Research and Industrial Cooperation of Andalusia) through the GTER (Thermodinamics and Renewable Energy Group). SOLAR CONCENTRA’s Working Group GT4 coordinated by Manuel Blanco, the Managing Council and the associated members have contributed to prepare the report.

The report aims to make an approach to identify the research lines in the STE sector. To achieve this, a survey has been carried out with two consecutive questionnaires to the members of SOLAR CONCENTRA to gauge their opinion. The results have been analyzed and shown on the document.

Moreover, a review of current international reports and studies about STE has also been carried out, from which the main lines in research have been identified and have been included in this report.

This is the first report before preparing the report “Proposal to prioritize research lines” for the sector. Thanks to this work, SOLAR CONCENTRA has achieved very relevant information to be applied to the second phase.

The Technology Platform for Concentrating Solar Thermal Power goes on working to prepare the Strategic Research Agenda for the sector, the primary objective for which it was created.

Please note the report is only available in Spanish
