DOE announces USD 24M to CSP Technologies

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released a new roadmap and awarded USD 24M to ten research teams that will advance next-generation concentrating solar-thermal power (CSP) technologies, which utilize the sun to generate heat for electricity production and industrial processing. Five of these ten projects will focus on advancing industrial uses for this technology, specifically in the cement, hydrogen, and chemicals sectors, and help advance the goals laid out in DOE’s Industrial Decarbonization Roadmap and recently launched Industrial Heat Shot. The other five projects will support DOE’s USD 100M ongoing efforts to develop next-generation CSP plants, which can generate low-cost electricity at any time of day. This announcement will further advance the development and deployment of solar energy technologies and help support President Biden’s goal of achieving a net-zero economy by 2050.
