The value of renewable energy systems is undeniable since they rely on a free source that will not run out. However, they depend on meteorological conditions, leading to uncertainty on the instantaneous energy supply. An interesting concept consists on the strategic combination. In this article, two 1-MWel concentrated solar power/biomass hybrid power plants are presented and evaluated. One is intended for power generation only, while the other delivers combined heat and power. Technical and economic performances were evaluated through numerical simulation and calculation of the levelized cost of electricity.
