High temperature thermal energy Storage by Reversible thermochemical Reaction

Objective

StoRRe proposal concerns the area of thermal energy storage by chemical reaction for concentrated solar power plants (CSP). The objective of the project is to develop a new and promising solution for the heat storage with the following characteristics:
 Mid-term (24h to few days) up to long-term (several months) heat storage
 High storage density (300-500 kWh∙m3),
 High temperatures (300-550°C), which are representative of the CSP plants with cylinder-parabolic or CLFR technologies.
The objective of the StoRRe project is to develop and quantify, at a pilot scale, the interest of a thermochemical storage solution with the dehydration of Ca(OH)2, and to study the development opportunity at the pre-industrial scale.
The consortium is composed of a major industrial manufacturer involved in the CSP business, a SME developping innovative solar and biomass technologies and three research centres.
