15-16 May 2018 • Almería, Spain
CAPTure partners gathered in Almería, Spain, on 15 and 16 May 2018 to discuss about CAPTure ongoing activities and next steps, during the 4th General Assembly of the project. The 2-days-meeting was hosted by CIEMAT – Plataforma Solar de Almería.
The first day was dedicated to present the main achievements of the project, presented by a representative from each Work Package leaders. The round-table discussions were finalised before a social dinner in Tabernas, Almería.
The second day, CAPTure partners focused on new challenges and next steps, also presented by the representatives from each Work Package. After two days of exchanging views and with new initiatives on the calendar, all the participants enjoyed of a guided tour at the premises of the Plataforma Solar de Almería.

CAPTURE partner, CEA, presented CAPTURE at the International Thermal Spray Conference 2018 on Thursday 10 May 2018. This international conference and exposition for thermal spray technologists, researchers, manufacturers and suppliers is an opportunity to position CEA as thermal spray thought leader while promoting CAPTURE’s mission and results to the thermal spray industry.
The event is co-Located with AeroMat. It gives access to more than 500 Technical Sessions, including a special forums on:
- “Materials Development: New Technologies and Market Trends”
- “Additive Manufacturing: Metallic Materials Qualification and Component Certification”
- “Additive Manufacturing: Post Processing World Roundtable”
The conference also proposes industry-focused chat sessions, special keynote presentations and numerous networking opportunities with more than 200 companies in the thermal spray and aerospace industry, all under one roof.
Packed halls and high spirits among exhibitors and visitors: Intersolar and ees Europe draw to on 24th June 2016 after great success. CAPTure partner EUREC was among the 1.077 exhibitors and gladly presented the project to passing visitors.
At the end of the event, which took place in Munich, Germany on 20-24 June, around 43.000 visitors from 160 countries were present.
Sensibly integrating clean energy into the grids and shaping the transition to the new energy world is essential for the future, which is why smart renewable energy was the key topic at this year’s Intersolar Europe. The exhibitions linked the topics of energy generation, storage, grid integration and energy management. Equally important at the exhibition: Smart technologies that analyze and optimize power generation and consumption as well as interconnect various pieces of technical equipment to help create smart concepts for utilizing, managing and storing renewable energy.
The new focus on smart renewable energy and the accompanying forum proved particularly popular with visitors. At the forum, exhibitors and experts showcased potential solutions for combining renewable energies and storage in a smart power grid.
The Competitive Solar Power Towers (CAPTure) is focused on increasing concentrated solar power (CSP) 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.
