The Competitive Solar Power Towers Project

The main objective of the CAPTure project is to significantly reduce costs of concentrated solar power (CSP), in order to pave the way for its deserved competitiveness on the power market.

In order to increase plant efficiencies and reduce levelized cost of electricity (LCOE), the project will develop all relevant components that allow implementing an innovative plant configuration.

The global objective of this 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 approach that not only increases cycle efficiencies but also avoids frequent transients and inefficient partial loads, thus maximizing overall efficiency, reliability as well as dispatchability, all of which are important factors directly related to cost competitiveness on the power market..
