Researchers Explore Coating for Tanks Holding Molten Salts

The next-generation of concentrated solar power plants will require high-temperature fluids, such as molten salts in the range of 550 to 750°C, to store heat and generate electricity. At those temperatures, however, molten salts eat away at common alloys used in heat exchangers, piping, and storage vessels of so-called concentrating [...]

100 MW Redstone Concentrated Solar Power with 12 Hours Daily Thermal Energy Storage Closes Financing

ACWA Power has led South Africa’s largest renewable energy project Redstone CSP to financial close The ZAR 11.6 billion Redstone concentrated solar power plant will power 200,000 households upon completion Redstone CSP Closes Financing May 2021 – ACWA Power Commercial operation scheduled to start in Q4 2023 ACWA Power, a [...]

Lowering the costs of using solar-powered electricity when it’s not sunny

Solar power accounts for about 2% of U.S. electricity, but it could become more widespread if it were cheaper to generate this electricity and make it readily available on cloudy days and at nighttime. To lower those costs, Purdue University engineers are developing ways to improve how facilities called concentrated solar power [...]

Researchers Explore Coating for Tanks Holding Molten Salts

Keeping storage tank corrosion rates to a minimum is considered vital for use of molten salts in storage devices for electricity. Stephen Mraz The next-generation of concentrated solar power plants will require high-temperature fluids, such as molten salts in the range of 550 to 750°C, to store heat and generate [...]

For 100% Renewables, DOE Speeds-up Storage Policy

A Federal energy project funded through the US Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Electricity has initiated workshops designed to help state utility regulators determine best practices in policies to enable carbon-free energy storage technologies and, in particular, long duration energy storage, as renewable energy standards ramp up towards a [...]

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 [...]

MIT Proposes PV to Discharge Energy from 2,400°C Silicon Thermal Storage

Pumping hot molten silicon is the key to gigawatt-scale thermal storage. “This is the technological step that we made that preceded this,” said Henry. At this scale, you would need to able to pump a very large volume of very hot silicon through the enormous network of carbon graphite pipes. [...]
