The ITP Thermal team with colleagues in other ITPEnergised group companies have contributed to a range of publicly available reports that are provided here for download.
Concentrating Solar Thermal Technology Status – Informing a CSP Roadmap for Australia.
This report reviews the technical and industry background to CSP to inform its application in Australia.
It is also available on ARENA’s knowledge sharing website along with the roadmap document prepared by JHA and reports by other contributors.
Hydrogen Research & Development in South Australia
This study led by ITP Thermal, was prepared for the South Australian Government. It is an audit of hydrogen R&D activity in that state, analysed in the context and national and international efforts.
Comparison of Dispatchable Renewable Electricity Options
This study lead by ITP for the Australian Renewable Energy Agency can be downloaded from ARENA’s website .
As well as the report there are two spreadsheet tools that allow the user to vary the input assumptions for the calculations of LCOE and installed cost.
In The Spotlight-Australian Solar Energy R&D outcomes and achievements in a global context
The ITP Thermal team working with other ITP colleagues has produced this analysis of ARENA’s Solar R&D investments in both the PV and CST fields.
Synthesis of responses to ARENA’s 2017 RFI on CST projects.
ITP analysed the responses to their 2017 RFI for ARENA and prepared a report for them, a non-confidential version has been released publicly.
Leveraging the Ammonia Industry for Solar Energy Storage
This article from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers magazine, sumarises the work carried out in partnership with the University of California (UCLA).
Pathways to Solar Thermal Electric Cost Reduction – Perspectives from the Abengoa Perenjori Study.
Produced by IT Power for Abengoa Solar Pty Ltd, March 2015 as part of the public release material from their ARENA funded study for a molten salt tower CSP plant in Western Australia.
Concentrating Solar Fuels Roadmap.
The ITP team contributed to this key study lead by CSIRO, which produced three key documents:
Australian Companion Guide to SAM for Concentrating Solar Power.
This project for Austela, produced a set of input files and solar data files for use with the well known NREL System Advisor Model. The material is available for download from the Austela site.
Renewable Energy Options for Australian Industrial Gas Users.
This ITP lead study for the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, (2015), produced three resources:
