Ranga Pitchumani   - GW Solar Symposium 2012 Ranga Pitchumani - GW Solar Symposium 2012 Presentation Transcript

  • DOE SunShot CSP Program OverviewPresented at the Panel: The State of Solar Power—2012 George Washington University, April 12, 2012
  • SunShot Program Structure Distributed Generation Photovoltaics (PV) - on-site or near point of use - DOE Market TransformationSunShot Systems Integration Concentrating Solar Centralized Generation Power (CSP) - large users or utilities -
  • Concentrating Solar Power Team CSP Director  Dr. Ranga Pitchumani Industry and University National Laboratories Technical Project Contracts Management Monitoring Support Jesse Gary  Joseph Stekli  Thomas Rueckert Joseph Stekli  Mark Mehos (NREL)  Brad Ring Mark Lausten  Jim Pacheco (Sandia) Dr. Levi Irwin  Other Labs/Industry TPO General Program Finance Support  Jason Plageman  Allison Pezzullo  Craig Connelly  Ed Hoegg
  • SunShot Goal The DOE SunShot Initiative is a collaborative national endeavor to make solar energy cost competitive with other forms of energy, without subsidies, by the end of the decade. $0.21 $0.07 $0.03 $0.05 $0.06
  • Strategy for Recent and Future CSP FOAs CSP MURI HOT SunShot (2012)Fluids (2012) arpa•eHEATS (2011) 5

  • CSP Plants Under Construction in the U.S.Project (Developer) Size Tech Loan Start Ivanpah (BrightSource) 392 MW Tower $1.6 B 2013Broke ground in 2010. After delays associated with relocation of desert tortoises, construction has resumed fora mid-2013 COD for Unit 1 and late-2013 COD for units 2 and 3. As of February 2012, largest CSP projectunder construction in the world. Crescent Dunes (SolarReserve) 110 MW Tower/Storage $0.7 B 2013Completed financing in September 2011 by SolarReserve & Santander. Completed 540 ft. power towerconcrete shell in February 2012. Next phase will be to complete molten salt storage tanks. Genesis (FPL-NextEra) 250 MW Trough $0.8 B 2013/14Approximately 13% of the site is undergoing further archeological surveying in accordance with approvedplans. Construction continues on the remainder of site and is expected to be completed on time for the PPAstart date for Unit 1 of November 2013. Solana (Abengoa) 280 MW Trough/Storage $1.4 B 2014Construction began in December 2010 and solar field installation is underway. Mojave (Abengoa) 250 MW Trough $1.2 B 2014CPUC approved PPA with PG&E in November 2011 and construction ramped up.Total 1,282 MW $5.7 B
