DOE Awards $21M in Grants to Cut Costs of Solar Thermal Desalination

The Department of Energy sees big potential for solar thermal desalination technologies. But only if the costs can be brought down — way down. That’s the goal of the 14 solar-thermal desalination research projects that won $21 million in DOE grants last week. The projects include many new desalination technologies such as forward osmosis, absorption distillation and supercritical extraction, as well as solar-thermal technology advances like cheaper mirrored trough collectors and lower-temperature storage systems. Others are aimed at proving out integrated solar thermal desalination systems in the field, and collecting data to identify the best opportunities for the technology. Overall, the goal of the grants from DOE's Solar Energy Technologies Office is to drive down the levelized cost of water to about 50 cents per cubic meter for municipal applications, and to $1.50 per...
