The key advantage in a power tower CSP system with direct molten salt heat transfer and storage is that it can deploy inexpensive and scalable thermal storage, thereby enabling cost-effective 24-hour electricity generation using only solar energy. SolarReserve is the industry leader in this technology, with the successful design, engineering, fabrication and erection of the world’s largest capacity molten salt tower receiver at the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project in the United States.
SolarReserve exclusively licensed and then acquired Aerojet Rocketdyne’s intellectual property (IP) rights and patents related to molten salt technology for concentrating solar-thermal power and electricity storage applications. This proprietary technology was developed and tested by rocket scientists at Rocketdyne for more than two decades, with over 100 patents and patents pending.
