The goal of this RFI is to assess how we can accelerate the commercialization of sCO2 integration with CSP.
Today, the Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) has issued a new request for information (RFI) about the integration of advanced supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) power cycles and thermal energy storage with concentrating solar-thermal power (CSP).
This is a chance for you to help inform our office’s strategic planning efforts. Share Your Thoughts on sCO2/CSP Integration. We want to collect information about the following topics:
The programmatic and strategic aspects of sCO2 integration with CSP
Components and designs of sCO2 cycles
Thermal energy storage
Practical design considerations for testing sCO2 integrated with thermal energy storage
The deadline to submit responses is 5:00pm (ET) on December 18, 2019. Learn more about this RFI by clicking here.
