Where Very Hot Solar Thermochemistry Research is Today

Heat demand by industry is the world’s largest energy end-use, the IEA calculates. So how can we supply that with renewable energy? For some heat needs, it is possible today, using concentrated solar thermal (CST). Many industrial processes need heat at between 150ºC and 400ºC, which CST can meet commercially [...]
