Molten salt storage in concentrated solar power plants could meet the electricity-on-demand role of coal and gas

The first thing you see of the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Facility, and you can be miles away, is a light so bright you can’t look directly at it. This sits atop a 640-foot cement tower, rising from the flat, empty Nevada desert around the halfway point on the highway from Reno to Las Vegas. … Continue reading Molten salt storage in concentrated solar power plants could meet the electricity-on-demand role of coal and gas
