Performance evaluation of a solar thermal storage system proposed for concentrated solar power plants

This study aims to assess the performance of the Hybrid Solar Thermal Storage (HSTS) system, the storage system proposed for concentrated solar power (CSP) plants. The heat storage hybridisation concept is based on coupling latent phase change material (PCM) and thermochemical storage system containing paired metal hydride (MH) beds. One [...]

Combining concentrated solar power with thermal storage to avoid wasting energy

In sunny locations, solar power can sometimes produce too much electricity for the grid. Australian company RayGen hopes to solve this problem by combining its hi-tech solar systems with thermal storage, as Richard Stevenson reports. Hybrid hope RayGen's first power plant, near Carwarp in Australia, makes use of its new [...]

Rondo’s Thermal Storage to Decarbonize TITAN Cement

TITAN Cement Group joins decarbonization and electrification investment leaders, Breakthrough Energy Ventures and Energy Impact Partners, in supporting Rondo Energy (“Rondo”) through its recent Series A financing round for the scale-up of its innovative “heat battery” technology, aiming to provide new solutions for decarbonizing power generation and heavy industry, including cement [...]

Protermosolar advocates thermal storage in molten salts of concentrated solar power

Gonzalo Martín, General Secretary of Protermosolar, will analyze what the role of concentrated solar power plants will be in energy storage within a decade at the I Energy Storage Congress (ALEN'20). Currently, thermal storage in molten salts in solar thermal power plants reaches 7 GWhe in Spain. This type of [...]

Morocco Pioneers PV with Thermal Storage at 800 MW Midelt Cocentrated Solar Power Project

Morocco’s 800 MW solar hybrid project at Midelt will be the first solar project in the world to include thermal (heat) storage of PV (Photovoltaic) as well as CSP (Concentrated Solar Power). Midelt’s first-of-a-kind hybrid solar and shared storage project will deliver dispatchable solar at 7 cents per kWh. [...]

Concentrated Solar Power could also use slag as a thermal storage material

Slag is the steel industry’s biggest waste byproduct. It could find a use: to cut the carbon emissions from steel production Starting this year, thermal energy researchers in Spain’s Basque Country will test the use of slag as thermal energy storage within the steelmaking process, to cut the use of [...]

Webinar – How Concentrated Solar Power & thermal storage solves the variability challenge

Over 2 GW of Concentrated Solar Power is operating in the southwestern US. As growing amounts of PV and wind are added to the grid in that part of the US in response to the steady movement towards a carbon free grid, there is an opportunity for CSP to [...]

China’s Suunpower to incorporate EnergyNest thermal storage

Suunpower, a CSP developer and Engineering Procurement Contractor (EPC) , has signed a partnership agreement with Norway's EnergyNest to deploy thermal energy storage (TES) systems in China. Suunpower is involved in the construction of China's first 20 CSP projects for a total capacity of 1 GW. The EnergyNest TES [...]
