Latent heat storage for concentrating solar power
Due to the rising threat of climate change, there has been a significant effort to expand clean electricity generation from renewable resources - primarily solar photovoltaics and wind power. However, these resources provide variable generation that depends on when the sun shines and when the wind blows. To be effectively integrated into electric grids, this variable generation then needs complementary technologies that could enable continued growth. One potential enabling technology, concentrating solar power, is particularly attractive due to its ability to incorporate inexpensive thermal ...
