Areva teams with Sandia for CSP storage

Areva Solar has announced it is collaborating with Sandia National Laboratories on a new concentrated solar power (CSP) installation with thermal energy storage. As the company’s online video shows, the CSP storage project combines Areva’s modular compact linear fresnel reflector solar design with Sandia Labs’ molten-salt storage system.

This will be the first CSP integration with Sandia Labs’ Molten Salt Test Loop System, located at the US Department of Energy’s National Solar Thermal Test Facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico, says the company.
