Thermal Storage Innovations are instrumental in increasing performance and reducing CSP costs

    LondonThermal storage will affect the Levelized Energy Cost (LCOE) of Parabolic Troughs. This is one of the findings of a new report from CSP Today "Concentrated Solar Power Parabolic Trough: Cost & Performance". According to the report, when adding storage capacity, the capital cost rises with the increased solar field size, while the capacity factor – and therefore the annual energy yield – increases, (for example, <3700 hours at DNI 2000 for the reference plant with 7.5 hours of storage).
