Molten Salt Storage

Molten salt storage 33 times cheaper than lithium-ion batteries

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on March 12, 2018
Cost-effective energy storage is key to transitioning to a low-carbon society. Energy can be stored in the form of heat or electricity. A popular storage method for high-temperature thermal applications is a molten salt tank. Fact sheets created by the German Energy Storage Association, or BVES for short, show that molten salt tanks are around 33 times less expensive than electric batteries when it comes to storing a kilowatt-hour in them.

Zero Carbon Australia Stationary Energy Plan (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on July 6, 2010

This is the synopsis of a report prepared by Beyond Zero Emissions and the Climate Emergency Network, with the support from Climate Positive. The final version of the report will be launched on 14 July 2010.

The Zero Carbon Australia 2020 project was conceived to develop a blueprint for the transition to a decarbonised Australian economy by 2020. Wind and Concentrating Solar Thermal (CST) with Molten Salt Storage are the two primary technologies used, with some backup from biomass and existing hydro.
