Communication event organized at University of Seville by the SCARABEUS consortium

The next progress meeting of the SCARABEUS consortium will take place in Seville on the 20th and 21st of April 2022, hosted by University of Seville and Abengoa. This will be the first face-to-face meeting since October 2019 and all the partners are excited about it.

Alongside this meeting, the consortium has organized a communication event comprised of two main sessions. Session 1 will showcase the results produced by three research and innovation projects funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commission: SOCRATCES, SOLARSCO2OL and SCARABEUS. These three projects deal with Concentrated Solar Power technologies to enable large-scale energy storage (SOCRATCES), demonstrate the operation of supercritical Carbon Dioxide power cycles at megawatt scale (SOLARSCO2OL) and demonstrate the benefits of using supercritical CO2 mixtures in hot environments (SCARABEUS).

 

A second session will discuss the role of Concentrated Solar Power in the future energy landscape in Europe. Three high-level speakers representing the industry (Dr. Gonzalo Martín, PROTERMOSOLAR), R&D community (Dra. Ana Bernardos, CENER) and government (Dr. Sonia Fereres, Joint Research Centre of the European Commission) will share their views in a panel discussion enabling interaction with the audience.
