Title: SMUD HIBRED Closeout Report

Abstract

In January 2013 SMUD, the electric utility of Sacramento Calif., began the conceptualization and pre-engineering for a small steam energy augmentation project that would use high temperature (1000 F) Concentrating Solar Power collection technology and thermal storage to increase output of its existing 527 MWe gas fired combined cycle power plant. SMUD generation technology planners worked together with NREL and the DOE SunShot Program to try to complete such a project. Though technical challenges ultimately prevented the project from going forward, several important lessons were learned along the way. This report is a summary of lessons learned and other information which may be of help for others contemplating an Integrated Solar Combined Cycle (ISCC) retrofit.
