Molten salt storage 33 times cheaper than lithium-ion batteries

Molten salt is currently the most common method to store heat in large CSP plants and provide a constant on-demand supply of solar power without the need for fossil fuel backup systems. Companies such as German-based Frenell, formerly Novatec, offer a turnkey solution combining a solar field and a [...]

CWP proposes 250 MW concentrated solar power with storage in Townsville

Australian renewable energy developer CWP Renewables is proposing a 250MW solar tower and storage project near Townsville, saying it could be a cost effective alternative to either a new coal generator or even battery storage proposed by wind and solar projects. The project – dubbed Freedom Energy One – was [...]

Concentrated Solar Power is driving GWh’ worth of new molten salt storage capacity

Thermal storage hasn't garnered the level of industry attention lately as battery storage, which is experiencing quickly falling prices and rising deployments. But thermal storage, and molten salt in particular, actually exceeds the capacity of battery storage in operation so far, according to a new report from the International Renewable Energy [...]

Why concentrated solar power towers and storage plants will reshape energy markets

The 150MW solar tower and molten salt storage plant to be built in Port Augusta has been made possible by a ground-breaking pricing and contract structure that could help completely reshape Australian power markets, including the end of “baseload” power as we know it. The South Australian government announced last [...]

Alphabet (Google) turns to molten salt to store clean energy

Using giant vats of molten salt and antifreeze under the codename “Malta,” Google’s parent company Alphabet is joining Tesla and smaller companies that are developing ways to store wind and solar power affordably to expand renewables and combat climate change. Alphabet’s X research lab is developing a cutting-edge molten [...]

2017 Summit Forum On Molten Salt Storage Will Be Hold On August 5th In Golmud Of Qinghai Province

Molten salt is a great medium for heat transfer and energy storage, its features and parameters varies a lot due to different components.
