24/7 Power: The future of Concentrated Solar Power

Despite the continuously falling costs of solar and wind power, renewable energy continues to grapple with the issue of storing energy produced from sun and wind when the sun doesn't shine and the wind doesn't blow. Lithium batteries store energy from the sun to provide it when needed, even if [...]

Concentrated solar power system that works at night a renewable energy game-changer

An innovative thermal battery being developed by Curtin University researchers will be key to a solar power system capable of producing electricity overnight, rivaling fossil fuels as a viable source of power for commercial and heavy industries around the world, including mining operations. Curtin is collaborating with international renewable [...]

EPRI to Lead $5 Million DOE/NETL Project to Test Concrete Thermal Energy Storage Technology

The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) has been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) to lead a pilot project to test concrete thermal energy storage (CTES). Participants in the $5 million project will design, construct, and test a CTES system to [...]

Application of BCMC Storage & Heat Exchange System in Concentrated Solar Power

Concentrated Solar Power is a green form of clean energy. The whole life cycle is environmentally friendly, the energy storage cost is low, the technology is mature, the power output is stable and controllable, and it has peak-shaving capability and can be used as a basic power source. The [...]

Is concentrated solar power (CSP) forecast to contribute to energy storage over the next five years?

In addition to PSH and battery storage, concentrated solar power can provide large-scale energy storage, but the way CSP solar thermal storage characteristics differ from those of PSH and stationary batteries prevents direct comparison. Nonetheless, most concentrated solar power plants deployed over the outlook period are expected to include thermal [...]

Scientists Develops Special Fluid To Store Concentrated Solar Power

Scientists in Sweden have developed a specialised fluid, called a solar thermal fuel that can store energy from the sun for well over a decade. "A solar thermal fuel is like a rechargeable battery, but instead of electricity, you put sunlight in and get heat out, triggered on demand," Jeffrey [...]

Concentrated solar power (CSP) real-time dispatch model hikes revenues by over 15%

New software combining dispatch algorithms with probabilistic forecasting could reduce Concentrated solar power (CSP) bid prices by a quarter and spur fresh U.S. CSP deployment, Mike Wagner, Principal Investigator at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), told New Energy Update. On October 1, NREL launched a new three-year study [...]

The Gen3 CSP research program will de-risk advanced higher temperature designs and identify the best-placed system and storage technology for future market integration, leading researchers told New Energy Update. In May, the Department of Energy (DOE) launched its Generation 3 Concentrating Solar Power Systems (Gen3) CSP program to create [...]

Chile’s 24×7 Concentrated Solar Power Plus Storage Project is Back on Track

Construction of Latin America’s first, utility-scale concentrating solar power (CSP)-thermal energy storage project is back on track. Completion of the 110 MW, 24×7 Cerro Dominador CSP-energy storage project in Chile’s Atacama desert – expected in 2019’s second half will also mark Latin America’s first tandem, utility-scale, PV-CSP solar energy facility. [...]

ORNL’s molten salt history opens door for research into concentrated solar power

Thanks in large part to developing and operating a facility for testing molten salt reactor (MSR) technologies, nuclear experts at the Energy Department’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) are now tackling the next generation of another type of clean energy—concentrating solar thermal power (CSP). The Energy Department’s Solar Energy Technologies Office [...]
