SunShot awards $10 million for chemical-based thermal storage technologies for CSP plants - #solar

The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded $10 million through its SunShot Initiative to six research teams in order to develop a new generation of storage technologies that could be incorporated into concentrating solar power (CSP) stations. Unlike technologies currently employed involving heat-transfer fluids or molten salt, the award recipients are tasked with developing techniques for storing solar energy collected from CSP plants in the form of chemical bonds for weeks or even months. Existing forms of thermal storage involve either sensible or latent energy storage. Sensible energy storage requires large-volume, insulated tanks and is perhaps best exemplified by district heating systems, such as the solar thermal district heating system Arcon is building in Denmark. In a latent energy storage system, heat from the solar receiver is used to melt a material, such as the...
