Two important dissemination activities have been finalized in the last months: the peer-reviewed paper “Low-Cost Solar Electricity Using Stationary Solar Fields; Technology Potential and Practical Implementation Challenges to Be Overcome. Outcomes from H2020 MOSAIC Project” has been published in February 2020 in ENERGIES to present the potentialities of the Low-Cost Solar Electricity Using Stationary Solar Fields. And an important article “Outcomes from H2020 MOSAIC Project” has been published in the Helioscop specialized online magazine. More news related to MOSAIC results will come soon so stay tuned!
MOSAIC prototype is currently under construction in Sanguesa (CENER). The foundation has been finalized and other parts of the prototype (mirrors and structure) are currently under construction. In the coming months, we will keep the CSP community updated with the development of the MOSAIC prototype and concept, especially during the testing site. Stay tuned!
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.
A review meeting about MOSAIC has been held on 11th April 2018 in Brussels hosted by AMIRES and TEKNIKER at the CZELO (Czech Republic Liason Office for R&I projects). The project has been reviewed in his technical, dissemination and management progress by INEA and European Commission representatives supported by an external reviewer. A specific exploitation session named Innovation Radar Pilot action has been dedicated to MOSAIC to identify potential exploitation routes for the project.
MOSAIC M6 meeting has been held on 10th and 11th May at the Politecnico of Turin. Partners has summed up the progress within the first six months of the project and planned next steps to follow the project’s timing. Furthermore, consortium has visited the wonderful rooms of the historical resident of former Italian Vittorio Emanuele II. Thanks to Politecnico for the excellent hospitality!
