Integration of Concentrated Solar Power and liquid air energy storage

The University of Birmingham and the University of Melbourne are offering this joint PhD co-funded by both institutions providing the opportunity to study alongside world-leading academics in Birmingham and Melbourne. Many forms of renewable energy supply are intermittent, relying on storage or backup to provide uninterrupted power. Concentrated Solar Power [...]

EnergyNest redefines Energy Storage with HEATCRETE

The other day, China National Energy Administration has officially released the “Chinese 1 GW Demonstration Project Short List”. With total installed capacity of 1GW, this list comprises of 9 tower plants, 7 parabolic trough plants and 4 Fresnel plants. In addition to excitement among CSP industry insiders, if you think [...]

New technology puts solar power to work all night long

Energy storage is crucial for taking full advantage of solar power, which otherwise suffers interruptions from cloudy skies and nightfall. In the past few years, concentrating solar power plants have begun producing additional electricity at night and during peak demand periods by using stored heat energy to propel a steam [...]
