Concentrated solar power (CSP) plant
Solar power is a relatively young and growing industry, and one we believe is worth investing in. That is why in 2010 we cemented our partnership with BrightSource Energy Inc.
We decided to develop CSP (concentrated solar power), because of its potential for large-scale, efficient power generation. Requiring clear skies and strong sunlight, at least 1900kWh/m2/y, CSP is the ideal fit for plants located on the Sun Belt. It is also ideal for centralised on grid or industrial applications with adequate tariff structures.
Thanks to the option of storage capacity that it offers, CSP allows you to have power long after sunset or on days with some cloud coverage.
We offer the most advanced collection and tracking systems for CSP available on the market today.
Together with our 100 years’ heritage in power generation, expert project management and worldwide coverage, this means we can offer you everything from complete turnkey CSP plants to individual components for your solar power plant.
Our technology can be adapted to work for all project types and sizes, including both hybrid power generation and all-solar power plants
Alstom’s technology includes affordable options well suited for hybrid and retrofit projects as well as highly efficient tower collectors that deliver a significant return on investment.
