Performance evaluation of a solar thermal storage system proposed for concentrated solar power plants

This study aims to assess the performance of the Hybrid Solar Thermal Storage (HSTS) system, the storage system proposed for concentrated solar power (CSP) plants. The heat storage hybridisation concept is based on coupling latent phase change material (PCM) and thermochemical storage system containing paired metal hydride (MH) beds. One [...]

Why heat-recovery for solar reactors matters

In this solar technology, highly concentrated solar energy directly heats a solar reactor and drives a thermochemical process, using carbon dioxide and water as the raw materials to produce syngas, a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide. The syngas can be converted to liquid transportation fuels using established technologies [...]

Can Morocco solve Europe’s energy crisis?

Morocco has big ambitions to export electricity produced by solar and wind farms to Europe, but should it be prioritising such renewable energy for its home market? "The resources we have here could be one of the big, big answers to European demand," says Moroccan energy entrepreneur Moundir Zniber. Mr [...]

Mohammed bin Rashid Solar Park enhances UAE’s stature as renewable energy pioneer

The UAE is a pioneering country in developing the renewable and clean energy sector and finding alternatives to conventional energy sources. The country is continuing its efforts to achieve its objectives for the next 50 years, which include leading the efforts to ensure the energy sector’s sustainability, benefit future generations, [...]

Oxygen fix for high-temperature molten-salt degradation (and corrosion) at 620°C

The molten salt mixture deployed in today’s commercial CSP plants for thermal energy storage is liquid at 565°C and degrades at higher temperatures. Yet higher temperatures would increase thermal efficiency. So how can we develop a molten salt mix that can reach temperatures up to 620°C without degradation? And at [...]
