Solar energy stored in sulphur

A new approach to sector coupling: German Aerospace Center (DLR) conducts research on a new kind of concentrated solar power plan. In the PEGASUS research project, the German Aerospace Center’s Institute of Solar Research in Jülich is studying a completely new kind of solar thermal power plant which stores solar [...]

Concentrated Solar Power Goes Where PVs Can’t

Global solar energy supplies are growing rapidly, with nearly 10 times as much solar capacity installed today as there was a decade ago. Leading the boom is the photovoltaic (PV) panel, which converts sunlight into electricity using semiconductors. But even as the glossy rectangles become increasingly cheaper and ubiquitous, solar [...]

Research for more economical concentrated solar power

DLR and the University of Evora are testing the use of molten salt in a solar power plant. Engineers from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum fuer Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) have taken an important step towards using molten salt as a heat transfer medium in parabolic trough solar power [...]

Why Likana’s 24-Hour Solar Bid under $34/MWh Lost in Chile

At the annual SolarPACES Conference (held virtually for the second year) Cerro Dominador’s CEO Fernando Gonzalez answered questions from the international network of concentrated solar power (CSP) researchers and developers attending about exactly what happened in the recent Chilean energy auctions with the record-low bid for CSP at under $34/MWh. [...]

US may require 39 GW of Concentrated Solar Power to decarbonise

The full decarbonisation of the US power grid could require 39 GW of CSP capacity with thermal energy storage (TES) and potentially far greater levels, the US Department of Energy (DOE) said in a report published September 8. The U.S. currently has around 2 GW of installed CSP capacity, three [...]
