Understanding the Impact of Wind Conditions on Concentrating Solar Power Structures

NREL Embarks on Two-Year, SETO-Funded Computational Modeling Project High wind loads increase structural design costs of concentrating solar power (CSP) collector structures, such as heliostats and parabolic troughs. In a new two-year project, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will work with the Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency … [continued]
