Techno-Economic Analysis of a 10 MWe Solar Thermal Power Plant Using Ammonia-Based Thermochemical Energy Transfer

Luzzi, Andreas; Lovegrove, Keith; Fillipi, Ermanno; Fricker, Hans; Shmitz-Goeb, Manfred; Chandapillai, M; Kaneff, Steven


The production of solar thermal power on a continuous, 24-h basis is possible by applying thermochemical energy storage. An international group of industrial and academic partners is studying such a base-load solar power plant concept, where the reversible thermo-catalytic ammonia reaction serves as the energy vector between supply and demand. Early results confirm the technical soundness of the concept using conventional technology, equipment and materials, and indicate also the potential for...[Show more]
