New Solar Collector Tech Could Lower Costs for Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)

A new solar collector is starting a trend when it comes to concentrating solar power (CSP) technology. For the first time ever, “ganged heliostats” could be a viable option for new CSP systems. Skysun, a startup out of Bay Village, Ohio, developed the new design that could help cut the [...]

NREL investigates coatings needed for concentrated solar power

Next-generation concentrating solar power (CSP) plants require high-temperature fluids, like molten salts, in the range of 550-750 degrees Celsius to store heat and generate electricity. At those high temperatures, however, the molten salts eat away at common alloys used in the heat exchangers, piping, and storage vessels of CSP systems. [...]
