High Temparature concentrated solar thermal power plan with particle receiver and direct thermal storage


Report on dissemination and communication activities

This report aims at assessing all the dissemination and communication activities implemented by all the partners during the two first year of the project. It will detail how each activity has been implemented (purpose & expected impact, recipient, content, media, timing ...).

Plan for dissemination and exploitation of results

The aim of the Plan for dissemination and exploitation of results is to describe how the knowledge generated will be disseminated and taken through to application. The Plan, established at month 6 taking into account the structure presented in section 2.2 of Part B, will be updated at the end of each reporting period and for the final report.

Project Quality Assurance Plan and Project Handbook

Quality assurance processes for all project deliverables and published materials will be defined at Month 3 of the projetct, in the project handbook, to establish common standard for the whole project.

Report on Themis solar field performance

Define the solar flux measurement device and experimental data. Describe the moving bar experimental device developed for the project and measured flux distribution on the solar receiver.

Report on particle selection for solar heat capture and storage

Compare thermal and mechanical properties of particles and recommend one or two materials. Define conditions for solid circulation in the process (velocity, pressure in particular)
