Meet the projects: CAPTure

Fritz Zaversky, Principal research engineer at CENER, Head of thermal simulation group

What do you see as the biggest opportunity for the energy industry? 

At the moment, we are right at the beginning of the age of renewable energies. The large-scale application of renewable energy technologies (Solar, Wind, Tidal) will change the energy sector dramatically, including many challenges but also exciting new business opportunities. With an ever-increasing share of renewable energy technologies that are for the most part not dispatchable, cost-effective energy storage solutions are the most promising opportunity for the coming years!

What do you see as the biggest threat to the energy industry?

The biggest threat that I see at the moment is the fact that current power grids are not yet prepared for high shares of variable renewable energy. Grid stability issues become more and more a real threat. The promoting of dispatchable renewable energy technologies like Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), with cheap large-scale thermal energy storage (TES), could be one promising solution!

What are the key topics you will highlight at this year’s EUW?

The CAPTure project will present an innovative concept of providing firm renewable power supply, based on harvesting solar thermal energy that is converted into electricity applying the combined cycle (topping GT + bottoming Rankine cycle) as highly efficient power cycle.
