This New CSP has the potential to realize but there are some challenges with it

In our last post, SE 773, we mentioned what Heliogen wants to build and now we want to indicate how they have made a dubious claim by this CSP prototype.

Their prototype has four technical challenges. First of all, the tower of their CSP is casting shadows on mirror arrays so that part of mirrors can not reflect sunlight during some hours of a day, especially when the sun goes down in the sky. Therefore, it works some hours a day at the optimum level provided that the weather is clear and sunny. The shadow effect could be reduced if the mirrors are not placed in the close distance to the tower.

Second and the most important challenge is that the hight of the tower is shorter than the conventional CSP plants. However, the height of common towers are about 140 meters or 460 feet, the height of Heliogen’s tower is only 55 feet, according to CleanTechnica. Therefore, it will result in reducing the probability of achieving the 1000 degrees Celcius for the Heliogen’s CSP plant.
