High Temperature concentrated solar thermal power plant with particle receiver and direct thermal storage
ABOUT next - CSP
Next-CSP is a consortium of 10 partners gathered to fulfil one objective: improving the reliability and performance of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plants through the development and integration of a new technology based on the use of high temperature (800°C) particles as heat transfer fluid and storage medium. To achieve this objective, the project will demonstrate the technology in a relevant environment (TRL5) and at a significant size (4 MWth). The complete system will be tested at “Thémis” experimental solar tower facility (France).
Next-CSP will participate in the 26th edition of SolarPACES from September 28 to October 2 2020. Due to COVID-19, SolarPACES 2020 will go online.read more
