Updated:2018-07-04 15:57Source:CNSTEA
2018 will be an extraordinary year in the history of solar thermal power generation in China. In May, China National Energy Administration issued a notice on “Promoting the Construction of Solar Thermal Power Demonstration Projects”, required that we should unify our thinking and pay great importance to the construction of demonstration projects. The notice stated that we should work together to build a project promotion mechanism; strengthen collaboration and multi-party linkage to form a joint effort. On the evening of June 30, CGN New Energy Delingha 50MW parabolic trough CSP demonstration project was successfully connected to the grid for the first trial. The first batch of solar thermal power generation demonstration projects is the pioneer in the CSP development in China. China National Solar Thermal Energy Alliance hereby sorts out the latest progress of some demonstration projects according to the public news for reference.
