Slag is the steel industry’s biggest waste byproduct. It could find a use: to cut the carbon emissions from steel production Starting this year, thermal energy researchers in Spain’s Basque Country will test the use of slag as thermal energy storage within the steelmaking process, to cut the use of [...]
Over 2 GW of Concentrated Solar Power is operating in the southwestern US. As growing amounts of PV and wind are added to the grid in that part of the US in response to the steady movement towards a carbon free grid, there is an opportunity for CSP to [...]
Suunpower, a CSP developer and Engineering Procurement Contractor (EPC) , has signed a partnership agreement with Norway's EnergyNest to deploy thermal energy storage (TES) systems in China. Suunpower is involved in the construction of China's first 20 CSP projects for a total capacity of 1 GW. The EnergyNest TES [...]
Abengoa is erecting more than 3,200 mirrored parabolic troughs at its Solana concentrated solar thermal plant. When at full operation, the Concentrating Solar Power plant will serve more than 70,000 homes.
Thermal storage will affect the Levelized Energy Cost (LCOE) of Parabolic Troughs.
