World’s Tallest CSP Solar Power Tower Completed

World’s Tallest CSP Solar Power Tower Completed

The project will eventually use 10,000 "billboard-size" mirrors, called heliostats, to focus sunlight at a boiler, which will work in conjunction with a molten salt energy storage system that provides something that photovoltaic solar systems don't: power when the sun goes down. The mirrors will start to go in the ground in summer 2012. The molten salt receiver target will be added later this year and add 100 feet to the height of the tower. SolarReserve of Santa Monica, California closed a $140 million venture round in 2008 and has a $737 million loan guarantee from the DOE for the 110-megawatt molten salt storage power tower with 10 hours of thermal energy storage. This will be the tallest molten salt tower in the world, according to the DOE website. The firm licenses the molten salt power tower solar technology from Rocketdyne, a division of Hamilton Sundstrand. Investo...
