The European project CSP2 tests the new Concentrated Solar Power fluid

The global system will be analyzed and scale-up will be proposed toward industrial Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) facilities (10-50 MWe). The CSP2 project puts forward an alternative heat transfer fluid (HTF) for concentrating solar power (CSP) plants. We propose to use dense gas-particle suspensions -DPS- (approximately 50% of solid) in tubes as HTF; these tubes […]
