Thermal desalination is a proven technology well suited to the harsh conditions in the Gulf, but from an energetic viewpoint is quite inefficient compared to today’s more widespread Reverse Osmosis.
Sandia Laboratory is pioneering work in concentrating solar power, with falling particle heat transfer ( instead of a liquid working fluid) that is a pathway to storing higher quality ( temperature ) heat.
Aurora will be the largest project of its kind in the world, designed to meet the South Australian Government’s annual electricity consumption
Developers of air collectors can enter measurement or simulation data and compare results for steady-state operation. Scientists can carry out sensitivity analyses with Aircow in a relatively straightforward manner.
The facility delivers 110 megawatts of electricity plus 1,100 megawatt-hours of energy storage to Nevada’s gridunder a 25-year power purchase agreement with NV Energy, Nevada’s largest utility.There is no other existing solar project at this scale that can provide on-demand energy 24 hours a day, without any fossil fuel back up.
A Clean Energy Technology That Cannot Be Ignored by any government.
