On July 9, the Complutense University of Madrid and and the rest of the project partners organized an informative event on the innovation project MSLOOP2.0, the use of renewable energy (specifically solar thermal) and the benefits they offer compared to the use of other generation technologies.
The validation of parabolic trough technology with molten salts is the main objective of the MSLOOP project, where Cobra leads and works jointly with UCM, SBP, Archimede Solar and CADE Soluciones.
In addition to the consortium partners, other innovation projects’ representatives such as CAPture (Competitive Solar Power Plants), SOCRATCES and MOSAIC were present during the workshop.
The MSLOOP 2.0 project started in November 2016 and it is being developed by a European consortium composed of five partners from three European countries: Spain, Germany and Italy. The project is receiving EC funding in the framework of the “Fast Track to Innovation” (H2020).
The objective of MSLOOP is to validate a business opportunity for ternary molten salts in parabolic trough power plants with the development of a more efficient solar field and using the HYSOL hybridization system to achieve greater flexibility in the delivery of energy to the system. The expected result will be a new commercial solar thermal plant solution, with a reduction in the energy cost, where firm and dispatchable electricity will be generated through a disruptive and more sustainable hybrid plant concept.
