Solar plant keeps working, even after sundown

Solar plant keeps working, even after sundown Published Monday, 4th July 2011 A concentrated solar power plant in Spain has just supplied its first uninterrupted day of electricity to the network , providing energy to the grid even after sundown thanks to molten-salt storage.

The plant, barely one month into commercial operation, can store solar energy in molten salt using a thermal-transfer technology developed by SENER. The system enables the facility to deliver 15 hours of electricity production without solar radiation, helping to overcome fluctuations in the energy supply. “Gemasolar achieved optimal performance in its systems in the last week of J...
