Dispatchable Solar Power

Increasing contributions from wind and PV solar require Southwestern US grid operators to address the challenge of steep ramps and multiple daily peaks to balance energy supply and demand.

Solar Dynamics has developed an improved CSP plant design that is optimized for dispatch, capacity, and flexible operation.  This system provides a cost-competitive, low carbon option to deliver on-demand capacity and ancillary services to the utility in much the same manner as current gas peaker plants.
