SunBorne Energy to build 1MW solar power tower

SunBorne Energy is joining forces with the University of South Florida, the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi and IMDEA Energy to develop a 1MW solar power tower. Research and development for the cutting-edge project will draw upon the expertise of Dr Yogi Goswami, Dr Manuel Romero and Dr Aldo Stienfeld, with funding coming primarily from the Indian Government’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy and SunBorne.

The tower itself will include a field of heliostats designed by Titan Tracker – chosen due to their high accuracy and reliability. “We have selected Titan Trackers because of its performance according to our requirements but also combined with a relevant potential for cost reduction. This will allow us to achieve our targets for next commercial CSP projects in India,” said one of the principal investigators of the R&D project, Dr. Nitin Goel.

“We are really pleased to work with SunBorne as a business partner in India for a long-term cooperation. We are proud to have reached about 30% cost reduction in the manufacturing of our tracking systems and heliostats after the latest developments,” Titan Tracker’s managing director, Juan Cabanillas, added.

    Forecasting the evolution of a young, dynamic industry is by definition an uncertain business, and solar is no exception. Rarely, if ever, do the numbers broadcast by any of the various bodies involved in the PV prediction game tally, and even historical deployment rates remain the subject of hot debate. The paradox is that getting forecasts broadly right is going to become increasingly important over the next few years, particularly for those involved in producing the equipment that will support whatever levels of demand come to pass.
