Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories are working to lower the cost of solar energy systems and improve efficiencies in a big way, thanks to a system of small particles.
Testing heats up at Sandia’s Concentrated Solar Power Tower with high temperature falling particle receiver.
A soaring structure on the south side of the Department of Energy’s National Solar Thermal Test Facility combines two cutting-edge technologies in concentrating solar energy (CSP).
It combines Areva’s CLFR for concentrated solar power (CSP) parks with the molten salt test loop (MSTL), allowing the captured energy to be dispatched both at day and night.
AREVA Solar is collaborating with Sandia National Laboratories on a new concentrated solar power (CSP) installation with thermal energy storage.
Sandia has developed a significantly cheaper, more efficient, and more accurate method of measuring the irradiance from solar reflections using a digital camera.
Sandia National Laboratories is moving to front and center in industry efforts to harness electricity from the sun.
