Abengoa, under the Thermal Storage FOA, is looking at innovative ways to reduce thermal energy storage (TES) system costs.
The project objectives are to:
- Identify opportunities for cost reduction in near-term TES systems
- Identify two mid-term TES options with greater opportunities for cost reduction
- Demonstrate the TES options with the best cost reduction potential for parabolic troughs plants in the near and mid-term
Abengoa is evaluating several topologies for parabolic trough plants with storage and performing cost comparisons to determine relative advantages. Two topologies are being selected for development into system demonstrations.
