Solar Power uses energy directly from the sun and is a rapidly advancing energy resource of key interest to many of our customers. TSSECC Energy involves two basic technologies: photovoltaic (PV) and concentrated solar thermal power (CSP, sometimes also called CST). PV produces electricity directly with a technology that is rugged, simple, modular, and continuing to decrease in price as production capacity around the world increases. Technologies include fat-plate silicon modules, thin flim modules, and concentrating PV (CPV), with other types in development. CSP varies from PV in that it captures and concentrates direct solar insolation, extracting the energy as heat that can be stored and released as required. Heat can be combined with fossil fuels and used in in industrial processes. TSSECC Energy works across all of these solar technologies through services and support such as
A) Feasibility study for construction of solar power plants
- Examination of different are as according to the soIar atlas to select proper location for
- Solar farm development.
- Estimation of the electrical energy generation capacity.
- Investigation of environmentaI conditions, transmission and distribution of electricity.
- Cost estimation for construction and operation of solar farm.
B) Obtaining Iicense for solar farm development from Renewable Energy OrganIzation.
C) Obtaining permits for guaranteed power purchase and signing PPA for client.
D) Procurement of appropriate solar panels based on the selected site.
HARNESSING THE POWER OF THE SUN
SOLAR THERMAL HYBRID SYSTEMS FOR COOLING AND HEATING
More than 40% of the world’s energy is consumed for heating (hot water, process steam, space heating), cooling (air conditioning, cold storage) and lighting (artificial, ambient) in buildings.
TSSECC uses parabolic concentrators integrated with thermally driven double effect absorption chillers for cooling which reduce power consumption significantly as compared to conventional electrically powered systems.
Use of parabolic solar concentrating technology is also used for generating steam using solar energy. The system generates hot water at temperatures as high as 140°C and saturated steam at pressures of 3 to 4 bar.
