DOE Awards $10 Million for Concentrating Solar Power Storage Research

This announcement comes hot on the heels of President Obama’s recent pledge to make 2014 a watershed year for solar energy. The recipients of the Energy Department’s funding are the Colorado School of Mines, UCLA, the University of Florida, the Southern Research Institute, Pacific Northwest Laboratory, and Sandia National Laboratory. All will work on the development of “novel thermochemical energy storage systems” with the goal of achieving greater levels of efficiency in the storage of higher temperature, higher density solar energy. “The six projects that are funded are looking at three different classes of thermochemical systems,” said Dr. Ranga Pitchumani, chief scientist and concentrating solar power program manager for the Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative . “These include carbonates, hydrites and perovskite materials.” CSP technology employs mirrors that con...
