The Competitive Solar Power Towers Project

The main objective of the Competitive Solar Power Towers (CAPTure) project is to increase plant efficiencies and reduce levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) by developing all relevant components that allow implementing an innovative plant configuration. This plant configuration is based on a multi-tower decoupled advanced solar combined cycle (DSCC) approach that not only increases cycle efficiencies but also avoids frequent transients and inefficient partial loads, thus maximising overall efficiency, reliability as well as dispatchability, all of which are important factors directly related to cost competitiveness on the power market.
