Dr Keith Lovegrove - latest in Concentrating Solar Thermal (CST) power and dispatchable storage
Posted on 04 Oct 2012
Dr Keith Lovegrove is Senior Consultant – Solar Thermal at IT Power. He is a world leading expert in Concentrating Solar Thermal (CST) technology and has more than 20 years experience in leading solar thermal research – including 15 years teaching at the Australian National University (ANU) as head of the Solar Thermal Group.
Keith led the design and construction of the ANU Big Dish, the largest concentrating solar dish in the world (at 500m2). He is a key contributor to the IEA Solar PACES program, which is an international cooperative network developing CST and chemical energy systems. Keith will present a CST and storage technology update from the latest Solar PACES conference (that he attended in September 2012), as well as research carried out on the potential of CSP in India.
