A cost effective and efficient approach for a new generation of solar dish-Stirling plants based on storage and hybridization

Objective

In the context of the Energy SET-Plan of the European Commission relevant research and developments channelled to increase the percentage of renewable energy sources. It is crucial the collaboration of the Industry, SME’s and research institutions to bring together the step forward to finally integrate renewable energies as the main source of electricity.

Renewable energies represent a wide field upon which international research needs to be focused. The necessity has been envisaged by the BIOSTIRLING consortium and it has been supported by the synergies found with the large-scale international project SKA. The SKA antennas and reception centres, constitute a continental scale sensor network. Aligned with the trend of renewable resources, the overall objective of the project is to implement a cost effective and efficient new generation of solar dish-Stirling plant based on hybridization and efficient storage at the industrial scale.

In order to achieve successfully the ambitious objective, the collaboration performed by the consortium will take the advantage of the expertise of the members in the developing of a Solar Dish/Stirling system, which besides being more operative in terms of construction, transportation and commissioning, it will be more efficient than actual systems because an innovative storage device and a bio-hybrid energy collector will be developed to guarantee the electricity supply independently on time and weather conditions. Increased modularity of the system will enable the Solar Dish/Stirling system to act as an energy supplier not only to the grid but also in specific uses as supplying energy to the SKA project, which sets the most challenging power requirements of any Large Research Facility.
