Molten-Salt Power Towers: Newly Commercial Concentrating Solar Storage
Molten-salt storage is already commercially available for concentrating solar power (CSP) plants, allowing solar power to be produced on demand and to backup variable renewable sources such as wind and photovoltaics. The first CSP plants to operate commercially with molten-salt storage utilized parabolic trough concentrators, for example, the Andasol-1 plant. A new type of storage plant has now reached commercial status, with the 19.9-MW$\rm e Torresol Gemasolar power tower, featuring 15 h of...[Show more]
