Solar Energy

“There is no doubt humanity is nearing a crisis point. Old ways of doing things, from growing food to providing energy and manufacturing the countless things we feel we need, have proved to be so damaging to human health and the environment that within a few decades they must be no more. Entirely new methods of providing life’s essentials must be devised to take their place” (Tim Flannery, Sunlight and seaweed – The Text Publishing Company Melbourne, Australia, 2017).

Developed and patented by Magaldi in cooperation with the “Federico II” University of Naples and some prestigious institutes of the National Research Council (IRC, INO, ISTEC), the STEM® (Solar Thermo Electric Magaldi) system is considered to be a very promising Concentrated Solar Power technology to produce clean energy in compliance with the most stringent environmental regulations.
This new CSP system with TES (Thermal Energy Storage) represents a “disruptive” technology because it’s able to collect solar energy and convert it into on-demand thermal energy, steam and electric power.
Installed at the Integrated Energy Pole of the A2A Group in San Filippo del Mela (Sicily), the first STEM® industrial scale plant is in operation since June 2016, generating superheated steam at approx. 550°C and over 50 bar and operating with a fluidized sand bed temperature close to 600°C.
