CSP systems such as these offer numerous advantages. They have no negative impact on the environment, harnessing the sun’s virtually limitless energy to generate 100% renewable electricity.
They are carbon-free and highly efficient with low operating costs. They can be scaled to generate large capacity (100MW+) and they offer increasingly high levels of thermal storage.
On-demand power availability is a primary consideration in energy market supply. Through molten salts, which account for more than 75% of the world’s thermal storage, plants like those being developed and expanded by PGST and its partners are able to deliver energy when it is needed most.
