Energy Application


Providing Lower Cost Thermal Storage

CSPULTRALITESOLAR INC. offers a thermal storage option that's designed to radically reorient your operations with:

  • Day Time Recharge for Multi-Day Heat Storage
  • Low Loss Thermal Container
  • Low Cost, Simple Construction
  • Solid Phase Heat Storage
  • 1/2 the Volume, 1/2 the Cost Versus Salt
  • Controlled Add and Release of Heat to Steam
 

Liquid storage systems like those based on salt have an advantage in maximum energy transfer, as molten salt is transferred from one tank to another. The disadvantage is that two tanks are required, both being of fairly heavy construction to accommodate the massive weight of the salt. Even in buried systems, the tanks must be strong enough to hold back the soil as the salt is pumped out.

Our earth-based storage system only requires one relatively thin, walled insulated tank that is buried in the ground. The surrounding earth provides structural support against the weight of the storage medium in the tank, which does not vary. Traditionally, this comes with its own disadvantage — diminishing energy flow as the temperatures start to equalize.

We've solved this problem by staging charging and discharging of compartments within the storage system that are separated by insulation. This provides some of the advantages of a two-tank liquid system with the economics of a one-tank solid phase system.

Individual compartments within the insulated stainless steel storage container are computer controlled, allowing for staged charging and discharging for optimum storage efficiency. Systems can then be managed to produce the turbine-specific steam temperature required, and the controls will direct heat or store heat based on energy depletion as needed.
