SENER wins the US CSP Today Award

San Francisco-based SENER, based in San Francisco, received an award in the first edition of the US CSP Today awards in the best increased dispatchability solution category. SENER carried off this award thanks to its molten salt heat storage system, which enables plants with SENER technology to continue to produce power when there is no sunlight, either at night or when solar radiation is very weak. This system, which significantly increases the plant yield of plants without thermal storage, guarantees a continuous supply of electricity, overcoming intermittences, and renders it possible to flexibly adapt output to the demand for power, which is one of the main shortcomings of some renewable technologies. The award was delivered on 24 June during the fourth edition of the Concentrated Solar Power Summit held between 23 and 25 June in San Francisco, USA. The CEO of SENER’s Office in the US, José C. Martín, picked up the award. The objective of this project is to extend storage capacity to a broader number of applications based on lower-cost concentrated solar power.
