Large baseload solar power plant with energy storage planned in Chile

An industry leader in baseload solar power solutions and advanced solar thermal technology, SolarReserve, has received environmental approval from the Chilean government to develop one of the world’s largest solar projects with energy storage. Utilizing SolarReserve’s proprietary solar thermal energy storage technology, the Copiapó Solar Project, scheduled to reach commercial operation in 2019, will deliver 260 megawatts (MW) of reliable, clean, non-intermittent baseload power 24 hours a day to consumers of the central interconnected system. The project technology is based on SolarReserve’s successful Crescent Dunes project in the U.S., which is fully built and is going through final commissioning.
