Last chance to register for the final event !

The consortium is delighted to invite you to the final event of MOSAIC, in the form of a visit of the prototype and a series of conferences relative to innovative CSP technologies. Given the particular sanitary conditions affecting the whole Europe, the event will be both physical, in the form of conferences and a visit of the prototype in Sangüesa, Spain, and re-transmitted online; but we can only recommend you the physical visit of the prototype, as you will have a unique chance to see it with your own eyes !

Only a few places remain for the physical version ! You can still register for the online version until the day of the event.

Registration takes place HERE !

Register to the MOSAIC final event !

As the end of the project is approaching, the consortium is delighted to invite you to the final event of MOSAIC, in the form of a visit of the prototype and a series of conferences relative to innovative CSP technologies.

You can register HERE !

Please note that the physical participation in Sangüesa is limited to 22 people; once the limit is reached, you will still be able to register for the online transmission of the event.

MOSAIC at Solar Paces 2021

The Project Coordinator, Cristóbal Villasante, presented what should be the last participation of the project to a public event, in this case SolarPaces on 1st October, before its achievement in November 2021.

The general concepts, as well as the steps of the project’s development, were highlighted in a presentation focused on the lessons learned during the commissioning of the prototype and the steps towards the deployment of such a technology.

The slides used during the event can be found here

The next and final event of the project will be the visit of the prototype itself, open to the public for the occasion, and also accessible online ! The link to this event can be found here.

MOSAIC presented at INPOWER worskhop

Outcomes of the MOSAIC project were presented during the workshop dedicated to the topic “Materials & Processes for Thermal Solar System”. Half-day online workshop was organized within the framework of  H2020 funded project IN POWER on 27 October 2020.

MOSAIC project results were presented through presentation by Cristobal Villasante (TEKNIKER) on the topic TEKNIKER’s approach to the technological challenges of CSP. 

Livestream from the presentation is available here

MOSAIC at the SolarPaces2019 Conference

Also this year, MOSAIC Consortium presence was relevant in the SolarPaces2019 conference in Daegu, South Korea. Dissemination Leader Fabrizio Perrotta was present at the CSP H2020 Projects booth where the MOSAIC 3D Concept video was presented. Furthermore, the oral presentation Design and Analysis of a Helical Receiver for Solar Bowl Systems was presented during the Emerging Concepts plenary session by Mattia Cagnoli (POLITO) and Coordinator Cristobal Villasante explained the MOSAIC concept to many interested participants at the poster session. We are looking forward to share the final project results next year in SolarPaces2020!

MOSAIC Concept at the workshop MSLOOP 2.0: Key element for the new solar thermal energy plants

Coordinator Cristobal Villasante will present MOSAIC Concept at the MSLOOP workshop at the “MSLOOP 2.0: Key element for the new solar thermal energy plants” scheduled for the 9th July 2019 in Madrid. MOSAIC will have the possibility to share their experience with other sister projects in line with the clustering activities developed in the H2020 CSP clustering framework. More information about the workshop are available here.

MOSAIC at Sustainable Places 2019 conference

MOSAIC consortium will participate at the Next generation of Concentrated Solar Power technologies workshop in the framework of the Sustainable Places 2019 conference. Fabrizio Perrotta (AMIRES Project and Product manager) will present the innovative MOSAIC Fixed hemispherical semi-Fresnel concentrators concept plant to the clustering workshop organised by sister project NEXTOWER. Programme of workshop is available here.

MOSAIC concept presented at SolarPaces2018

Coordinator Cristobal Villasante presented the MOSAIC concept at the SolarPaces2018, through the oral presentation “MOSAIC, a new CSP plant concept for the highest concentration ratios at the lowest cost” (IK4-TEKNIKER and CENER) in the Central Receivers System session. A large and interested audience showed their interest and curiosity for the concept. Furthermore, the poster “Analysis of convective heat losses for a solar bowl helical receiver” from POLITO, CENER, and IK4-TEKNIKER, has been published in the poster session of the conference. Both publications will become the official reference material course of MOSAIC, which will be updated during the project lifespan.

Study visit to Auroville community in India

The community of Auroville in India hosted Cristobal Villasante (MOSAIC Coordinator) and Iñigo Pagola (researcher) in order to study in detail system operation based on fixed spherical concentrators as the MOSAIC concept is. The system in India has been operating in a daily basis for 18 years providing steam at 150ºC for cooking menus for 1000 people every day. The system used Terminol 66 as HTF during the first years but for the last 10 years they have been producing saturated steam at 2 bars directly at the receiver. The operation of the system along a day can be seen in this video

MOSAIC Consortium wants to thank the Auroville community for sharing their knowledge.

MOSAIC at the Second H2020 Coordinators’ Day Workshop on CSP

On 26th June 2018, the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) hosted the second H2020 Coordinators’ Day Workshop on Concentrated Solar Power. The aim of the workshop is to investigate potential synergies between projects in the area of Concentrated Solar Power with ongoing RIA, IA and CSA projects. MOSAIC project development has been presented to the audience and MOSAIC representatives participated in the group discussions to identify potential synergies and overlaps.
