    ANY SOLAR POWER PLANT WITH STORAGE

    NREL Report Finds Similar Value in Two CSP Technologies; Findings demonstrate increasing importance for systems with thermal energy storage

    February 11, 2014 (National Renewable Energy Laboratory)

    “Parabolic troughs and dry-cooled towers deliver similar value for concentrating solar power (CSP) plants [integrated with thermal energy storage], despite different solar profiles…[according to theNational Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Estimating the Performance and Economic Value of Multiple Concentrating Solar Power Technologies in a Production Cost Model…CSP with thermal energy storage is a unique source of renewable energy in that the solar thermal energy can be dispatched in a similar manner as conventional thermal generation to respond to changes in supply or demand…CSP uses the thermal energy of sunlight to generate electricity. Parabolic troughs and power towers both concentrate sunlight onto a heat-transfer liquid, which is used to drive a steam turbine. Unlike photovoltaic energy, CSP [with storage] can generate electricity not just when the sun is shining, but also after sundown…NREL is currently…looking at the value of multiple CSP configurations in California under an assumed 40% penetration of renewables…” click here for more
