As part of the StoreEnergy fair, STORASOL presented the following study. In a current and a future scenario, an economic comparison is made from the combination of PV & OPTES-Battery and PV & Li-Ion Battery.Read more Wirtschaftlicher Vergleich der OPTES-Battery mit der Li-Ion-Battery
The basic engineering has just been completed for the VHTTES (Very High Temperature Thermal Energy Storage) shown in the figure. The storage systems are to be used in a solar power plant and in a thermal battery for storing electricity. The two storage tanks shown are flowed through with 1000 ° C hot air and have a usable storage capacity of 10 MWh each.
Iron silicate with a grain size of 1.8-2.4 mm was tested as a new storage medium in our TESS 3A test storage facility. The first measurement results show very successful tests with an approx. 15-20% higher energy density compared to silica sand.Read more Materialversuche mit Eisensilikat (1,8-2,4 mm)
Storage materials can be tested with temperatures of more than 1000 °C in the latest experimental set-up.Read more Materialversuche mit über 1000 °C durchgeführt
