Regardless of whether a power plant runs on coal or natural gas, it has a very large environmental impact. Producing and transporting fuel also requires consuming resources and generating emissions. Stricter environmental requirements and increased energy costs are challenges for the industry. Solar energy can be used to preheat the water, the make-up water and the actual steam process. Solar collectors that concentrate the sunlight provide a lot of advantages for the purchaser. Read more about our products and...
When it comes to energy production and protecting the environment, going down new paths is more critical than ever before. We do just that. SCHOTT Solar has more than 50 years of experience in solar technology and combines expert knowledge in receiver technology for solar power plants with parabolic trough technology and photovoltaics under one roof. Welcome to the future.
In order to assure well-founded decisions in designing profitable solar power plants, the solar irradiance should be measured in the assessment phase. Irradiation is a crucial parameter for site selection and plant design and economics of plant. There are many different ways and technologies to measure the irradiance phenomena that influences the power generation of a future solar power plant. Ammonit’s solutions are designed to meet the latest standards with regard to accuracy and affordability of the measurement.
As is the case in many countries, utility-scale power plants that produce renewable energy at the megawatt level are eligible to receive the Turkish government’s support via financial incentives. These power plants, whose operating costs are much lower than those of conventional power plants, can sell renewable power to electricity distribution companies at a government-guaranteed price over a fixed period of time. Companies or individuals can invest in and develop both licensed and unlicensed renewable energy...
Turboden units allow to convert the heat collected by solar collectors into electricity through an efficient thermodynamic cycle. Concentrating Solar Power systems with Turboden ORC can be cost-effective from 200 kW electric, depending on the irradiation of the installation site.

District heating is a growing industry and can supply an entire city with energy. District heating can also be produced on a small scale in smaller power plants, so-called local heating networks. Future energy prices are a big uncertainty factor for today’s energy producers, particularly as customers are becoming increasingly environmentally aware. Solar collectors that concentrate the sunlight provide a lot of advantages for the purchaser. Read more about our products and discover how you can profit from...
SolarReserve’s industry-leading solar thermal technology features an integrated molten salt energy storage system that provides a stable and predictable electricity dispatch similar to that of conventional utility power facilities—without any associated harmful environmental emissions or volatile fuel costs. Additionally, our solar thermal power plants with integrated energy storage are cost-competitive with most new build fossil fuel or nuclear technology.
