The novel proposed schemes of hybrid Solar Chimney Power Plant (SCPP) offer a number of potential advantages and represents an innovative way to reduce cost and minimizing the environmental impact. They are based on thermal conversion, which allows hybrid operation with both solar radiation and low temperature geothermal to continue generating electricity even when sunlight is not available. This is a major advantage since it enables operation according to the actual demand for electricity, without limitation to sunlight hours only and considerably improves SCPP ability to compete with conventional power plants.
