High Temperature concentrated solar thermal power plant with particle receiver and direct thermal storage
ABOUT next - CSPNext-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).
We are pleased to announce that the completion of MS4 (Pilot solar unit ready for operation at Themis solar infrastructure) of the project.read more
