SEPA Tour of CSP plants in Spain

This story from Renewable Energy Access links to a couple of interesting files I had missed until a co-worker, Brian, tipped me off last week.

Mike Taylor, Director of Research at Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA), recently accompanied the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) on a tour of concentrating solar power plants and research facilities in Spain. SEPA has made available a multimedia presentation showcasing these projects.

The presentation summarizes some CSP basics with a rundown of the current technologies and the US projects outlook.

Then, it provides an explanation of public policies in Spain and an abbreviated tour of the three locations they visited in Sevilla (PS-10 and PS-20), Granada (Andasol), and Almeria (PSA), all provinces in the region of Andalusia, Southern Spain.

The first two locations visited are commercial projects, whereas the third, the PSA (frequently featured here) is a Research center testing many different technologies (in the way of the Sandia National Laboratory, NM).
