Carbon Reduction Ventures (CRV) is pleased to announce that following the execution of the funding agreement with State’s Low Emissions Energy Development (LEED) fund in October 2012, work has now commenced on the final feasibility studies for the 1.5MW North Midlands Solar Thermal Power Project.
It is expected that construction of the project may commence in the later half of 2013 or in early 2014.
Carbon Reduction Ventures (CRV) is pleased to advise that we will be moving to new offices in West Perth from December 2012.
In conjunction with Grover Projects, CRV will now be located at Suite 1, Number 5 Ventnor Avenue, West Perth, in a beautifully restored character building.
Concentrated Solar Thermal Energy Storage project developers Carbon Reduction Ventures Pty Ltd in conjunction with Solastor Pty Ltd, advise that the Western Australian State Government today announced they will receive $3.775 million from the State’s Low Emissions Energy Development (LEED) fund, towards the development and delivery of a Concentrated Solar Thermal Power Station in the Mid West SuperTown of Morawa.

The VirtualSolarTM system is capable of providing energy on demand 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.
The system operates by placing the VirtualSolarTM receiver containing a quantity of graphite on a 24m high tower and surrounding it with a quantity of heliostats. Using custom designed software, the heliostats follow the path of the sun and direct its rays onto the graphite. Due to the low emissivity of high purity graphite, thermal losses are very low over an extended period of time.
The advantage of this system is that heat can be converted to steam whilst the sun’s rays are being directed onto the graphite or after the receiver is sealed.

The Lloyd Energy Systems storage technology that VirtualSolarTM is based on, was selected for funding by the Australian Centre for Renewable Energy (ACRE) under the Advanced Electricity Storage Technologies (AEST) program
