247Solar Inc., a US company, is commercializing a CSP system that can generate electricity 24/7 at costs competitive with all forms of power generation. It eliminates most disadvantages of traditional power, PV, wind, and conventional CSP. Called the 247Solar Plant™, it was developed with funding support from the US Department of Energy by Wilson Solarpower Corp, a spinoff of MIT. Critical heat transfer innovations broke through CSP’s traditional complexity and cost barriers to enable high-temperature, solar-heated air to displace water/steam as the driving fluid for jet-engine-like turbines. Design, construction, and operation are all simplified with greatly reduced costs and increased deployment speeds.
The all-factory-produced, modular 247Solar Plant can be deployed as a single, off-grid system of 400 kilowatts plus 1,500,000 BTUs per hour of useful heat (e.g., for industrial heat or water purification), or as huge power plants made of hundreds of 247Solar Plants (analogous to wind farms). The system has few moving parts, uses mostly proven equipment, has no known environmental deficiencies, and can be operated simply, with low maintenance requirements. Its low-cost thermal energy storage system uses simple firebrick to store the sun's heat for nighttime use. To guarantee electricity 24/7, the system can optionally burn fuel on a limited basis and, like batteries, responds instantly to fluctuating power demand.
