NREL effort aims to cut the cost of CSP technology by focusing on heliogens

The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Sandia National Laboratories, along with the Australian Solar Thermal Research Institute, launched a Heliostat Consortium (HelioCon), an international effort to drive down the cost of heliostats. Heliostats are a key component of concentrating solar-thermal power (CSP) technologies. NREL said that CSP with low-cost thermal energy storage can be used either […]

EIA report: California hydroelectric facilities continue to respond to prices despite drought

Despite widespread, intense drought conditions, hydroelectric power plants in the California Independent System Operator (CAISO), the grid operator for most of the state, provided a significant amount of generation from April 2021 to September 2021, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Although drought conditions reduced water supply, hydroelectric generation during this period still increased in response to the higher […]
