Concentrated Solar + Molten Salt Storage = Dispatchable Renewable
So-called Power Tower solar generation dovetails with energy storage in ways that provide an unusual degree of flexibility in the production and use of a renewable resource: all at prices that are already overtaking the cost of new-build coal
“The 110MW Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Plant, a concentrated solar power project due to be completed in Nevada early next year, will not just be the largest solar power tower plant with fully integrated energy storage built – it could also challenge the way the world thinks about renewable energy. Or even energy sources in general.”
