Solar power overnight

April 4th, 2019, Published in Articles: Energize

Vast Solar has built a modular, grid-connected 6 MWth CSP plant with thermal energy storage, at Jemalong, New South Wales, Australia. The plant is designed to achieve high efficiency at low cost. Each of its five, small array-modules concentrate solar radiation on a dedicated thermal receiver tower 27 m in height.

The five modules connect to a central thermal energy storage tank, from which the stored thermal energy is passed through a steam generator to make steam for a 1,1 MWe turbine and electricity generator. The project’s thermal energy storage system can dispatch renewable energy – on-demand – day or night.
