Concrete Storage for Solar Thermal Power Plants and Industrial Process Heat (2008)

Submitted by Hans Craen on September 17, 2009

This paper was presented at the 2008 International Renewable Energy Storage Conference which took place in Berlin, Germany. In 2003/2004, the German government funded a project undertaken by the German Aerospace Center to test a concrete storage module on the Plataforma Solar de Almeria in Spain.

A follow up project developed by Ed. Züblin AG concentrated on cost reduction, storage capacity and thermal conductivity. The design, construction and test results of the concrete storage test module are presented in this paper.
