​​​​​​​​Welcome to the OMSoP website

The OMSoP project, co-funded by the European Union's 7th Framework Programme for Research and Development aims to provide and demonstrate technical solutions for the use of state-of-the-art concentrated solar power system (CSP) coupled to micro-gas turbines (MGT) to produce electricity. The intended system will be modular and capable of producing electricity in the range of 3-10 kW. 

In February 2013, the OMSoP project kicked off with 8 partners from 5 countries with a total budget of 5,8 million euro. Successful dissemination and implementation of the project results should result in the demonstration of the stand-alone-system, addressing the key innovation bottlenecks: the high temperature solar receiver, the stand-alone solar dish concentrator and the more reliable micro-gas turbine.

During the 4-year project, the City University London will provide coordination and management service assisted by the European Turbine Network (ETN) who is also responsible for the dissemination activities.
