Competitive SolAr Power Towers (Capture)

May 2015 – July 2020


Increase plant efficiencies and reduce LCOE by developing all relevant components for implementing an innovative plant configuration based on a multi-tower decoupled advanced solar combined cycle that increases cycle efficiencies and avoids frequent transients and inefficient partial loads, thus maximizing overall efficiency, reliability as well as dispatchability.



  • Project management and coordination.
  • DSCC – Modular multi-tower decoupled solar combined cycle concept (WP1).
  • Solar receiver (WP2), Regenerative heat exchange system (WP3), Solar-driven Brayton cycle (WP4), Solar field (WP5).
  • System integration and testing in the relevant environment (WP6)
  • Risk analysis (WP7), Dissemination and communication (WP8), Exploitation of results (WP9)
