CSP Storage in South Africa: Driving Down LCOE

Share Article

Researchers at CSP Today have completed work on their brand new guide focused on the benefits and challenges when integrating thermal energy storage into CSP plants in South Africa.

Hours of research has resulted in the general release of this resource, which provides data and information on how CSP and storage technology can benefit the South African energy mix.

The guide also provides an introduction to the different thermal energy storage technologies that are commercially operating and under-development. In addition it examines the impact of the new Time of Day (TOD) tariff, recently introduced by the Department of energy, and how this will make CSP with storage the leading technology choice.

CSP with thermal storage can reduce peak demand, maintaining a high operational and capacity value. With energy supply a critical issue for South Africa, CSP’s thermal storage capability can offer dispatchable energy that will stabilize the grid for years to come. Therefore, gaining an understanding of storage technology is the next step for this market.
