A different X factor

Using the electricity from renewables and converting it to another energy carrier is nothing new. While many in the energy industry focus on green hydrogen, other researchers are examining the possibility of storing that power as molten salt to help high-temperature processes to decarbonise

Molten salt is gaining popularity as an alternative P2X technology

SOLAR LESSONS Molten salt technology used in concentrated solar plants (CSP) is being used as the basis for long-term storage processes

COAL REPLACEMENT Salt storage projects could be used at retired coal plants in order to reduce infrastructure costs

KEY QUOTE Salt storage, and thermal storage in general, is underrated ...
