Impact

minwatercsp

MinWaterCSP will increase technology performance by:

  • introducing dry/wet hybrid cooling systems
  • developing compact heat exchanger technology based
    on wire structure surfaces
  • introducing treatment of used mirror cleaning water
  • recycling of waste water streams

Technology performance improvement has the following impacts:

  • reducing cooling system capital and operating costs
  • increasing net power output and saving water
  • expanding CSP technology to locations with
    limited water supply
  • reducing dependency on fossil fuels and making
    CSP more attractive for investors
  • reducing impact on the environment during the entire life-cycle
  • saving material by using novel wire structure heat
