From plans to power – your realistic blueprint for commercial success
OVER 300 ATTENDEES NOW SIGNED UP - LAST FEW SPACES REMAIN!!
U.S. Department of Energy's goal is to install 1,000 MW of new CSP
systems by 2010. This level of deployment, combined with R&D
to reduce technology component costs, will help reduce CSP electricity
costs to just $0.07/kilowatt-hour. So CSP can compete effectively!
CSP is a proven technology, and promises to be one of the most effective
providers of clean energy in the world by 2020. The CSP revolution
has begun… and is an opportunity you need to grab with both
hands! It’s going to be worth $200 billion as soon as 2020
and you deserve a slice of the pie!
The opportunity to turn 9 GW worth of PPA into real projects producing
energy for the grid is right here –your industry colleagues
and competitors will be in San Francisco hearing from experts on
thermal storage, transmission, policy and regulatory issues, permitting,
risk mitigation, and much much more! There is so much for the taking,
and we have all the information you need to do so!
In January this year, over 350 representatives from CSP companies
such as Ausra, Skyfuel, Brightsource Energy, Solel, Sopogy, Thelen
and Sener came together to discuss just how to do this! Such is
the demand and speed of growth, that we are running the show for
its second time in 2008!
Unprecedented demand meant that the Summit in January completely
sold out, so this time we have booked a top venue with more space.
We are anticipating in excess of 450 attendees at the conference,
so sign up today to make sure you don’t miss out as we can’t
guarantee that even this big venue won’t run out of space!
Here are some pictures from the Concentrated Solar
Power Summit in San Francisco, USA
3 KEY REASONS WHY CSP IS POWERING FORWARDS
10 GW of power in California alone expected to be achieved in
the next 12 years, with another 10 GW in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico,
Colorado and Utah, the capacity of CSP to succeed in providing competitive
utility-scale power is astounding.
Between November 2007 and April 2008 alone, over $30 Billion
in investment was proposed for plants to be constructed in the next
several years. Interest, investment and necessity for Concentrated
Solar Power show no sign of slowing down!
The Bureau of Land Management has received right-of-way requests
encompassing more than 300, 000 acres for the development of approximately
34 large scale solar thermal power plants totaling approximately
24, 000 MW.
BUT – we’re not there yet, there are real issues you need to contend with – now!
We’ve spoken to countless solar companies, utilities, permitting
bodies, investors, engineers, project managers and many more in
the industry in a bid to discover exactly what the issues are that
you need to hear about, and soon!
Getting an efficient thermal storage system installed
in your plant
Ensuring transmission capabilities are second to none
Keeping your costs low and your profits high
Making regulation work in your favour
Putting PPAs into practice – realistic projection
of your CSP goals
These are just some of the barriers to the CSP goal. But these technical
and regulatory concerns are overshadowed by the prospect of the
dreaded ITCs – will they be extended or will the all-important
30% tax break come to an end?
This is why this summit could not have come at a better time –
get the information and contacts you need to supercharge your business!
Find the answers to all these questions, and so much more, at the
2nd Concentrated Solar Power Summit – you just cannot afford
to miss out!
We’ve put together the very best agenda, the very best speakers
and the very best networking opportunities for two days, September
30th to October 1st, so that you have the top information, best
practice and second-to-none contacts that will make your project
succeed and generate ROI for your investors!
What will you hear, and why do you need to hear it?
You will hear from those who are doing it, and learn exactly where
the main hurdles lie and how they could be overcome (and indeed,
if they can at all!)
Kicking off with our ‘Power Panel’, experts from NREL,
Abengoa, Skyfuel, Solar Millennium and SMUD will take you through
how to talk numbers when it comes to selling power to utilities,
and how to ensure you set realistic targets!
Storage – is it the Holy Grail of CSP? Developers and investors
know that the only way for CSP to be viable long-term is by producing
power on demand –a few hours of storage is not enough!! Hear
from Sener, SolarReserve and Nexant about the technologies available
from molten salt to thermal oil, real plant implementation, and
why storage is so crucial to the efficiency and worth of your project!
Get to grips with the regulations that will both help and hinder
you. At the summit we will ensure that you get to grips with both
local and national regulation and legal issues. Representatives
from Ernst and Young, Worley Parsons, Thelen and many more will
cover the very latest in regulation, as well as updating you on
the all-important Investment Tax Credits…
We’ll discuss the impact that regulation can have on your
project; top solar companies, utilities and environmental bodies
including BrightSource Energy, Arizona Public Service, and the Environmental
Defense Fund will be helping you to understand the importance of
land and water acquisition, state-by-state transmission capabilities
Cost reduction is key! Top-notch technical know-how help you cut
costs and increase efficiency across your project. Sharing their
experiences at Nevada Solar One, engineers Lauren will show you
how to include EPCs in projects from the outset to keep costs low.
Plus, our utilities including PG&E, SMUD and APS will tell you
exactly what you need to do in order for CSP to be a fully commercially
viable option for the grid.
Plus we have exclusive case studies from SolarReserve, Ausra, CEERT,
Solar Millennium, Sopogy and many more, offering cost effective
and profit driving tips on sites, planning, design, procurement,
construction and commissioning. Hear from those who’ve succeeded
and avoid common pitfalls!
Discover, step by step, how to take your CSP plant from design and
planning, through construction to implementation. While keeping
costs low and profits high, and avoiding the costly mistakes.
Don’t miss out!!
Networking opportunities at this Summit are second-to-none –
with roundtables, business card swap session, networking drinks
party and exhibition hall, you won’t fail to connect with
