Could U.S. Get 20% of Electricity from Solar Under Power Lines?

The fossil fuel lobby and the Tea Party will kill the idea. Too much competition.

U.S. Solar Pipeline Shifts Again, 2.25 GW of CSP Will Now Be PV

New CSP and storage innovations from Shec Energy:

With the unique solar receiver design,I understand the conversion efficiency is around 30 % and heat storage at 850 degrees C, much higher than molten salt.

The Rise of Concentrating Solar Thermal Power

Canada's SHEC ENERGY reports patenting an number of inventions in utility scale concentrated solar thermal power and storage that when scaled up, represent a major reduction in costs per KW hour and would be disruptive to the CSP industry. SHEC reports a rapid manufacturing process that is at least eight times faster than the fastest parabolic mirror forming methodology.
SHEC's main breakthrough is a solar beam receiver that can process heat over 825 degrees C and is likely the only such technology in the world, having an emissivity loss of only about 2%. (parabolic trough technology is about 45% loss)

SHEC has a proprietary liquid that can store heat at 850 degrees C (conventional medium molten salt is only at 560 degrees or lower) with implications for baseload power and increased turbine efficiencies.

SHEC ENERGY has an MOU with Sweden's Cleanergy to build waterless (no steam turbine needed)solar sterling engines. Swedens' Cleanergy has an order for several thousand solar sterling engines that can be made with SHEC's receiver. Efficiency conversion rate is about 32% or about double that of typical PV tech.
SHEC ENERGY was selected to participate in the Obama administrations solar trade mission to India and has solar farm

MOU's in the region dependent on completing the integrated pilot plant. There is an MOU with a South African jurisdiction to build a 50 MW solar farm. This requires funding to complete an environmental assessment.

Germany ( after a due diligence visit to SHEC's lab)has offered a $40,000,000.00 grant to build a parts factory there , but this requires matching funds. There are a number of applications for these technologies including utility and village scale power both, efficient energy storage, hot water, air conditioning, industrial heat for smelters and any remote power needs where there is no grid connection. SHEC ENERGY is a private company engaged in a funding round at this time.

Agreement at Climate Change Talks in Cancun Is a Step Forward

It is not an "agreement" because nothing is binding.

Therefore it is a wish list.

Greek Parliament Approves HelioSphera Manufacturing Subsidy

SHEC energy of Canada has much more efficient technology which I have been trying to introduce to Greece, yet they continue to not respond and subsidize inferior outdated techology.

First Solar to Develop 30-MW Thin-film Project

I am looking for the best price per KW/hr PV solar panels for 10 MW power plant.

Will this company provide it ? email KRITS(at)ROGERS.COM

New PV Regulations Set by Greek Parliament

SHEC energy has solar thermal "next generation" power technology and is currently speaking to Greek officials..

I wonder if anyone knows if solar thermal would qualify for the tarriffs?
