Women+ in Concentrated Solar, with the valuable support and organization by ATA Insights, is happy to present their webinar on “The untapped potential of small scale CSP“, which was held online on January 16, 2024 @ 1 pm CET (duration: 1h).
CSP is emerging as a dynamic solution in the renewable energy landscape. Unlike its large-scale counterparts, small-scale CSP systems are designed with modularity in mind, providing a flexible and scalable approach to energy generation. Whether it’s powering a remote community, an agricultural operation, or an individual residence, these systems can be tailored to meet specific energy needs, offering a sustainable alternative to traditional power sources.
The decentralized nature of small-scale CSP is a game-changer. By bringing solar energy generation closer to the point of use, these systems reduce dependence on centralized grids, especially in off-grid or remote areas. This decentralization not only enhances energy access but also promotes resilience, making small-scale CSP a key player in the quest for sustainable and locally-driven energy solutions.
Beyond electricity generation, small-scale CSP showcases its versatility in various applications. From providing heat for industrial processes to supporting agricultural activities like crop drying, the potential applications are diverse.
Join this webinar to learn how small-scale CSP stands out as a technology that empowers communities and businesses alike to harness the abundant power of the sun:
- Discover the need and solutions available on small scale CSP to provide affordable and sustainable energy solutions for industrial process heat and rural on/off-grid applications
- Learn about small-scale concentrated solar power systems
- Access an example of a practical case on small-scale concentrated solar power system
Electrification Solutions Project lead at Shell, representative of Women+ in Concentrated Solar leadership team
Sabrina will introduce the need and solutions available on small scale CSP to provide affordable and sustainable energy solutions for industrial process heat and rural on/off-grid applications. For regions with power outages or limited access to electricity, these solutions can help address energy security and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.
Research fellow at ANU (Australian National University)
She will present insights from her research paper on small-scale concentrated solar power systems, touching on system-level modelling and techno-economic optimization, while also providing an overview of research progress in this area.
