Growing Focus Concentrated Solar Plants to Fuel Thermal Energy Storage Market Growth During Forecast Period

Thermal energy storage (TES) is a kind of energy storage. Thermal energy storage means heating or cooling a medium to leverage the energy when required later. Thermal energy storage can strike balanced energy consumption between day and night. Various technologies, such as sensible heat storage, latent heat storage, and thermochemical storage, can be used for thermal energy storage. Sensible thermal energy storage is considered one of the feasible options to decrease energy consumption and lower CO2 emissions. They utilize water or rock for storing and distributing heat energy. Sensible thermal energy storage is most appropriate for residential buildings. Latent heat storage systems accumulate energy without the medium alterations in temperature but rather rely on the modifying state of a medium. The phase change materials can store heat in their mass as latent heat. These materials are used in building and solar applications, accumulating and storing excess building heat. Thermochemical heat storage systems are based on chemical reactions. Thermal energy storage technology, such as molten-salt storage, is widely used at concentrated solar plants.

Sodium chloride (NaCl), KCl, and MgCl 2 have potential applications in high-temperature thermal energy storage in CSP plants. Major countries such as the US, China, Germany, and South Africa focus on deploying CSPs and investing in advanced technologies to enhance the operational efficiency of the plants. CSP technologies leverage mirrors to reflect and concentrate daylight onto receivers that accumulate light energy and transform it into thermal energy or heat. This thermal energy can then be applied for industrial heat applications or to provide heat to a turbine or heat engine that can drive a generator and generate electricity. CSP deployment is increasing globally owing to the benefits of dispatchable thermal energy storage, including significant cost reductions achieved by the industry. In addition, peaking power plants or peaker plants supply electricity when the demand is elevated or act as a baseload source that can fulfill electricity demands as per the requirement because they are equipped with thermal energy storage. Thus, the rise in the development of the renewable energy sector and favorable government initiatives toward using a sustainable approach to reduce carbon emissions are fueling the investment in concentrated solar power plants (CSPs), which is driving the market growth.
