Con­cen­trat­ed so­lar pow­er pro­duces heat, elec­tric­i­ty and fu­el

  A DLR short study on solar thermal power plants summarises the current technological status, requirements and possibilities. Solar thermal power plants open the way for the production of controllable energy from renewable sources. The technology is about to be rolled out and has enormous potential. DLR has many years [...]

High Temparature concentrated solar power plan with particle receiver and direct thermal storage

Clean solar energy with storage can help Europe reduce emissions and deliver a secure and cost-effective electricity supply. EU-funded research suggests that fluidised crystal particles trump molten salts as the heat transfer and storage medium. © Gilles Flamant Current state of the art concentrated solar power (CSP) plants use central [...]

Concentrated solar power plants to produce electricity at night thanks to storage technology

Thermal energy storage (TES) systems can boost the conversion of solar thermal into electricity. They allow the efficient storage of heat during the day so that electricity production continues at night. Currently, the expansion of small and midsized concentrated solar power plants is limited because of the shortage of [...]
