Accepting the CSPPLAZA Technology Innovation Award at CSPPLAZA in China in July 2019, Craig Wood, CEO Vast Solar said:


“It is an honour to be recognised at this prestigious ceremony.   
Following the success of our pilot project, we are looking forward to commercialising the technology and we welcome international partners that can help us fully realise the potential of this groundbreaking technology.   

Our innovations have delivered world-leading control of HTF temperatures which enables higher operating temperatures and power cycle efficiency, increased energy capture through superior transient ride-through and reduced risk to downstream equipment.

In the coming years, we expect Vast Solar’s CSP technology to play a major role in energy developments here in China and around the world.

Like Vast Solar, China is a world leader in CSP and we believe a partnership would be mutually beneficial, as well as advancing the CSP industry more broadly”.
