Thermochemical energy storage to deliver Gen3 solar months later

Typically, simplicity equals low costs. But the creators of a multi-technology thermochemical energy storage system for Gen3 concentrating solar power (CSP) claim that their complex design would bring costs down by enabling the delivery of solar energy not just within a day or two like today, but whenever needed, weeks and months later. This dual [...]

Heliostat Consortium Unveils Funding Awards to Facilitate Affordable and Accessible Heliostat Deployment

The Heliostat Consortium, led by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories, has announced seven awardees from a request for proposals aimed at reducing the cost of heliostats and creating new market opportunities for the industry. Heliostats are mirrors that track the sun to reflect concentrated sunlight to a receiver, where it can [...]

“I really hope that these innovations help to increase the relevance of the CSP technology, so much required as the most dispatchable renewable technology”

Today we interview Cristina Prieto, associate professor at the University of Seville, Spain. She has been R&D manager at Abengoa, where she has been dedicated to the development of thermal energy storage solutions for solar thermal applications. She has led more than 20 international R&D projects related to thermal storage, with more than 50 papers [...]

Extra efficiency for Concentrated Solar Power plants via molten salt

The most important sources of renewable energy, the sun and the wind, are infinitely available – but they do depend on meteorological conditions, the time of day and the time of year. In the future, storage methods that smooth out these fluctuations will therefore play a decisive role in round-the-clock, dependable and efficient supply [...]

Concentrated solar reactor generates unprecedented amounts of hydrogen

A new solar-radiation-concentrating device produces “green” hydrogen at a rate of more than 2 kilowatts while maintaining efficiencies above 20%. The pilot-scale device, which is already operational under real sunlight conditions, also produces usable heat and oxygen, and its developers at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland say it could be [...]

Heat-recovery for a solar reactor is tested at ETH Zürich

Why heat-recovery for solar reactors matters In this solar technology, highly concentrated solar energy directly heats a solar reactor and drives a thermochemical process, using carbon dioxide and water as the raw materials to produce syngas, a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide. The syngas can be converted to liquid transportation fuels using established [...]
