Molten Salts Can Melt Down the Price of Concentrated Solar Power-Plus-Storage

Concentrating solar power (CSP) has long held promise as a renewable energy technology. CSP uses mirrors, or heliostats, to harness the power of the sun by heating and storing an inexpensive medium such as sand, rocks, or molten salt for on-demand energy dispatch. To spur CSP industry advancement and achieve [...]

New Sulfur-Based Solar Reactor Makes Cheap Green Hydrogen for Copper Mines

By producing solar hydrogen as an industrial service for copper mining, the scale is established for mass production of green hydrogen at much lower cost than electrolysis. Hybrid-Sulfur (HyS) solar reactor The fastest route to commercializing solar hydrogen could be by supplying hydrogen, oxygen and heat for Australia’s copper mining [...]

New tank design promises to significantly improve the reliability Concentrated Solar Power of thermal energy storage

A consortium including Australian concentrated solar power company Vast Solar has filed to patent a new tank design for thermal energy storage systems. The new design, it says, substantially mitigates the risk of tank failures which have been identified as one of the key shortcomings of the economical storage technology. [...]

SENER launches Solgest-1, the first hybrid concentrated solar power with storage and photovoltaic plant in Spain

SENER Renewable Investments, the SENER Group subsidiary that promotes and develops highly technological renewable energy projects, has launched the first hybrid solar project in Spain that merges CSP technology with molten salt storage and photovoltaic technology. In this design, the SENER group is combining two widely known technologies for its [...]

Concentrated Solar Power Goes Where PVs Can’t

Global solar energy supplies are growing rapidly, with nearly 10 times as much solar capacity installed today as there was a decade ago. Leading the boom is the photovoltaic (PV) panel, which converts sunlight into electricity using semiconductors. But even as the glossy rectangles become increasingly cheaper and ubiquitous, solar [...]

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 [...]
