Supercritical CARbon dioxide/Alternative fluids Blends for Efficiency Upgrade of Solar power plants

Project description

A novel power cycle puts CO2 and solar power on the same winning team

Power plants convert heat energy to electricity. Conventional fossil fuel-fired power plants generate heat from combustion, using water or steam as working fluids to convert heat energy to mechanical energy in a turbine which then generates electricity. The use of supercritical CO2 as the working fluid is gaining significant interest because it enables higher thermal efficiencies at lower cost. The EU-funded SCARABEUS project is developing a new power cycle concept based on the use of supercritical CO2 blends for concentrating solar power plants. The technology is expected to significantly reduce capital and operating costs, resulting in attractive reductions in the cost of electricity from concentrating solar power.
