Developing CSP Storages with Kraftblock material.

The Newcline project, funded by the EU with 1.7 million euros, is a European collaboration between Empresarios Agrupados, the German Aerospace Center, the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, the SPF Institute for Solar Technology and Kraftblock. The partners aim to significantly improve the technology for storing thermal energy from Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plants.

Kraftblock has developed a new material for molten salt storages used in CSP plants to improve the economics and the charging and discharging process. The thermocline is the layer of temperature that is created when the storage tank is heated or cooled (charged or discharged).
