The Next Generation of Solar Thermal Storage

November 7, 2010

Large scale thermal solar systems are being built today around the world, more and more with thermal storage based on phase change of molten salts. That means, they will be able to continue making power on cloudy days or when the sun goes down.  MIT has announced a breakthrough in what may be the next generation of energy storage.

I promise I’ll be getting back to climate solutions videos, soon.  I had been hoping the barrage of climate denial that started a year ago would abate, but since that doesn’t look likely, I’ll just have to redouble my efforts, find the time, and get em done.

I’m using Final Cut software now, in the hope that will speed up my production process.  I’ll let you know how that works out.
