CSP is key for the Chilean renewable energy future. Because Chile possesses the best Direct Normal Irradiation (DNI) in the World, the price that CSP can achieve for 24/7 renewable energy is lower than in most places. Because of its extraordinaire resource, Chile will be able to provide its own mining industry with affordable dispatchable renewable energy and also potentially become a large exporter of hydrogen related products, such as renewable ammonia, in the years to come.
The key to these huge opportunities lies on Cerro Dominador, the first CSP project in LATAM to go online. Cerro Dominador, a 210 MW PV-CSP hybrid with a high temperature power tower, will become the key reference project for permitting, constructing and financing new projects.
In this webinar we will analyze how the synchronization and connection of Cerro Dominador is progressing.
- Analyze the synchronization timeline of the project and how different modules were seamlessly tested and connected along the way, with issues pinpointed and rectified immediately
- Understand how this CSP project is managed and operated for maximum efficiency, and what predictive maintenance will be carried out in the first years
- Consider the learning curve of the project and how the next projects – which are already coming along in development phases – will profit from all the lessons learnt
- Hear about the opportunities that this success opens up for CSP in Chile and LATAM in terms of cost reduction and building of new projects to satisfy demand for dispatchable renewable energy
