Reported from CSPPLAZA: Luneng Haixi 50MW CSP project is part of Luneng Haixi Complementary Multi-energy Demonstration Project, which is one of the first batch of complementary multi-energy demonstration projects in China.
This multi-energy project is a scientific and technological innovation project integrating wind power, photovoltaic, CSP and energy storage. It is designed by the Northwest Electric Power Design Institute Co.,Ltd of China(NWEPDI).
Within the territory of Golmud City, Haixi Prefecture, Qinghai Province, China
The total installed capacity is 700 MW, including 400 MW of wind power, 200 MW of photovoltaic, 50 MW of CSP, and 50 MW of energy storage.
The project started construction in June 2017 and is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
Why to build the project?
The project aims to combine wind power, photovoltaic, CSP and energy storage to form an optimal combination of wind, light, heat and energy storage to effectively solve the imbalance of power output during peak and low peak periods and improve energy utilization efficiency.
Highlight of the project
The project includes six parts: wind farm, photovoltaic power station, solar thermal power station, energy storage power station, 330kV collection station and national multi-energy complementary operation control center. through the use of joint scheduling technology, the project can achieve the following functions:
Through complementary multi-energy operation, the peak shaving pressure of the power grid can be effectively reduced. Considering that the output limit is matched with the load curve of Qinghai Province, the project will significantly reduce the power-limiting ratio through energy storage and CSP adjustment.
The CSP power station, equipped with 12h energy storage system, is located on the south side of the photovoltaic power station and adopts tower molten salt technology.
After the project is completed, it will not only provide clean, cheap and reliable power support for regions and enterprises, but also play an active role in optimizing regional energy structure, improving ecological environment and achieving clean development.
