• Development of new thermocline concepts that can be applicable to different CSP plants (PT, CR, LF)

    • Two concepts related to materials are proposed (structured ceramic filler refractories - multi-layered PCM-TCF)

    • The two concepts will be experimentally tested in a lab-scale set up (fundamental studies) and at relevant pilot-scale of 4 MWh    

    • Detailed simulations of both concepts will be validated with the experimental data generated in this project

    • Both concepts will be analysed and optimized in terms of system integration and LCOE savings on a CSP system level and up-scaling for CSP target applications
