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 ...
Researchers in Germany are looking at further developing molten salt technology as a means to store heat and produce electricity
Germany is testing whether a nitrate salt thermal storage system could aid the provision of process steam for industry while earning subsidies for capturing emissions of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, and combusting it for energy supply
Special report - Electricity Storage part 4/5: No means of affordably storing large volumes of electricity in all geographies exists, but a robust grid, connected over a wide area, can deliver green energy reliability
Batteries score in their ability to rapidly inject bursts of electricity into the grid, but demand for the service is not greater in countries furthest ahead in transitioning to renewable energy
