EVALUATION OF DIRECT AIR COOLED HEAT REJECTION UNITS FOR SUPERCRITICAL CO2 POWER PLANTS

Supercritical CO2 cycles (sCO2) are recognized as a promising solution for the exploitation of different energy sources: from fossil fuel combustion and nuclear energy to solar energy and waste heat recovery. The large range of possible applications and the possible scarcity of water for sCO2 systems makes the use of direct air-cooled heat rejection units …

“The future energy system – meeting complexity with flexibility” Workshop recording available online

The EU has set ambitious goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. To achieve these goals, the share of renewable energy sources must grow rapidly. This fundamentally changes the role of conventional power generation and raises the question: How will the energy system of the future look like? By increasing the efficiency and flexibility of conventional …
