Areva’s concentrated solar power design to use energy storage

Areva Solar is collaborating with Sandia National Laboratories on a new concentrated solar power (CSP) installation with thermal energy storage at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Solar Thermal Test Facility in Albuquerque, N.M.

The CSP storage project combines Areva’s modular Compact Linear Fresnel Reflector (CLFR) solar design with Sandia Labs’ molten salt storage system. The CLFR molten salt storage system is expected to be commercially available in 2013.
