Solar thermal power plants with 10+ hours of thermal energy storage available now!

Dr Keith Lovegrove, Managing Director of ITP Thermal Pty Ltd and a director of AUSTELA, recently highlighted that solar thermal power plants with 10+ hours of low-cost built-in thermal energy storage have been in operation internationally for several years, and are proven technology (Read his full article HERE). AUSTELA has long advocated that the benefits of integrated energy storage, providing in-built dispatchability, should be taken into account when comparing electricity costs derived from different generation technologies.

AUSTELA continues to engage in the public debate to raise awareness of the benefits of solar thermal power technologies, including their immunity from risks of supply, cost and carbon emissions associated with gas-fired power generation, and CSP’s cost advantages over battery technology at large scale.
