Hybridization of solar-thermal technology with other energy sources Workshop


Within the framework of the sixth International Conference on Information Technology in Renewable Energies, a “Workshop hybridization of solar-thermal technology with other energy sources” will be held.

The Conference will take place between 23 and 26 May at the ETSIT of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) in Madrid.

This Workshop is organized by the HYSOL consortium, composed by different companies and European universities. The aim of this conference's workshop is approached from different perspectives a new system of Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) and completely renewable hybrid that has developed a pre-industrial scale.
It has included a new configuration in a conventional CSP plant with storage system in order to provide a source of stable and reliable power, as they often renewable energies depend on the weather conditions that have a variable or component stochastic.This solution includes an aero derivative gas turbine (AGT) exhaust gases simulator with a heat recovery system (HRS) that will recover the heat from the exhaust gases in the storage system. The evaluation of biomass-derived gas fuels (bio-gas and syngas) production and consumption in the hybrid CSP plant will be studied, simulated and evaluated at a commercial scale.

HCSP-OES workshop will be held on Wednesday 25th of May in two sessions at the Hall building C from 10:30-12:00 and from 13:30 to 15:00, with the following schedule:

Session S1 (10:30-12:00); room B-11:

1. Biomas resources to hybridize CSP with biomethane: potential of horticultural residues and drought-tolerant crops
2. Environmental assessment of a HYSOL CSP plant compared to a conventional tower CSP plant
3. Operation and training tool for a Gas-Molten Salt Heat Recovery Demonstrator Facility
4. Biogas from agricultural residues as energy source in HCSP

Session S2 (13:30-15:00); room: B-11

5. Tayloring HYSOL: solar energy contribution to reach full Dispatchability and Firmness in target markets.
6. Numerical analysis for the characterization of non-ordinary heat exchangers
