SETO CSP Webinar February 10, 2022

Join the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) for the upcoming webinar, “Heating Up: Advances in Concentrating Solar-Thermal Power,” on February 10 from 3-4 p.m. ET.

SETO leadership will be joined by guest speaker Chiranjeev Kalra, Vice President of Power Generation Engineering at Heliogen, to highlight recent developments in the commercialization of next-generation concentrating solar-thermal power (CSP) technology. The webinar will also cover the broader scope of CSP research, development, and demonstration work in SETO’s portfolio, which advances DOE goals in renewable power, long duration energy storage, and industrial decarbonization.

The webinar will highlight the latest updates from across SETO, including the recently released Solar Futures Study and the National Community Solar Partnership Annual Summit. You’ll also hear about the many ways to engage with SETO, such as becoming a reviewer and staying in the loop with funding opportunities.
