Chile Considers Converting 30 Coal Plants into “Carnot” Batteries

By 2050 Chile plans to be carbon neutral. A crucial part of that goal is the decarbonisation of its energy mix. To do this, all coal-fired power plants will stop operating by 2040. IMAGE@Wikiwand A very simplified schematic of the essential idea of a “Carnot” Battery To deliver maximum benefit, two additional [...]

Aalborg CSP Can Retrofit Coal Plants into Thermal Energy Storage

Researchers at DLR, and NREL, and the Bill Gates-funded start-up Malta have been investigating converting coal plants into grid-scale thermal energy storage for curtailed intermittent renewable energy, as low-cost heat “batteries.” Aalborg CSP’s steam generation system for the 600 MW DEWA Concentrated Solar Power project in Dubai Conversion would repurpose [...]

Molten salt storage in concentrated solar power plants could meet the electricity-on-demand role of coal and gas

The first thing you see of the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Facility, and you can be miles away, is a light so bright you can't look directly at it. This sits atop a 640-foot cement tower, rising from the flat, empty Nevada desert around the halfway point on the [...]

How Germany plans to phase out coal without losing all the coal jobs, and how other countries could do the same

Germany has committed to completely decarbonize its national energy system.  Going 100% renewables, however, comes with electricity dispatchability challenges. One of the possible solutions would be to replace the coal in coal power plants with renewable energy as the ‘fuel’ for the turbines, using thermal storage to offset the intermittency [...]
