Storing energy and operating would be in two separate steps that tower CSP with storage is best suited to do.
This is the largest single-site Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) project in the world, based on the Independent Power Producer (IPP) model.
If part of the fuel used by a power plant is replaced with solar energy, power plant emissions will be reduced.
The RAISELIFE project is funded by the European Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and is coordinated by DLR Institute of Solar Research.
CSP technology is considered an intermittent source of power which supplies electricity during daylight hours, when demand is highest.
The Indian government set the ambitious target of generating 100 GW of solar power by the year 2021-22 under the National Solar Mission.
