Description / Abstract:

The solar updraft tower (also: Solar Chimney) power technology (SUTPT) is simple, robust, sustainable, and a long lasting technology, producing electric power from solar radiation with low maintenance cost and no cooling water. A SUTPT plant will provide electric power over many decades. The feasibility of the SUTPT has been demonstrated successfully by the famous Manzanares Prototype and more recently by a number of project studies. The main goal of the special collection was to gather the current knowledge in thermodynamics, fluid-mechanics, structural engineering, as well as comparison of hybrid or alternative energy concepts. The associated discussions will facilitate exchanges of new ideas and provide a guide for future research directions in the SUTPT area.
