Research project

NewCline (H2020 - CSP ERANET)

Thermocline is a cost efficient thermal storage system able to reduce capital costs of CSP up to 40 %. The objective of this project is to develop new thermocline concepts that can be applicable to different CSP plants. Detailed simulation of two thermocline concepts will be validated with the experimental data generated in this project. Based on the simulation tools, both concepts will be evaluated and optimized in terms of system integration and LCOE savings on a CSP system level and up-scaling for CSP target applications.
