Concentrated Solar Power Plants with Molten Salt Storage: Economic Aspects and Perspectives in the European Union

Concentrated solar power plants belong to the category of clean sources of renewable energy. The paper discusses the possibilities for the use of molten salts as storage in modern CSP plants. Besides increasing efficiency, it may also shift their area of application: thanks to increased controllability, they may now be [...]

Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) Defined Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) is a rapidly growing form of solar energy that harnesses the power of the sun to generate thermal energy and electricity. It uses mirrors to concentrate and focus sunlight onto a specific area, where it is converted into heat. CSP systems [...]

DOE seeks stakeholder R&D advice to advance solar fuels

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) has issued a request for information (RFI) on the technology needs and cost targets for renewable fuels produced using solar-thermal energy and thermal energy storage. DOE looking for stakeholder advice to advance commercialization of solar fuels such as jet [...]

Successful PROMES-CNRS thermocline test of latent/sensible heat storage

Most industries currently burn fossil fuels for heat. But to supply heat directly from sunlight, research attention is turning to solar thermal energy storage (TES) so that heat can be delivered as consistently as combusting a fossil fuel using purely solar energy. A solar thermal energy storage breakthrough – a [...]

2022 Blue Book on China’s Concentrated Solar Power industry launched

Concentrated solar power has one huge advantage: the energy can be converted into electricity even when the Sun isn’t shining

James McKenzie believes that “concentrator solar power” could be the answer to our environmental woes. The Ivanpah Solar Power Facility in Nevada uses thousands of mirrors to focus sunlight onto a tank of water at the top of a tower, with the resulting steam being used to drive turbines.
