Georgia Tech Faculty Win Research Awards to Advance Concentrated Solar Power - Expo @ E2Expo
Initiative to develop the next generation of concentrated solar power (CSP), a technology that uses heat from the sun to turn power-generating turbines.
The researchers will collect information on the thermophysical properties of molten salts used in concentrated solar facilities and study particle flows and heat transfer that may be part of thermal storage applications.
CSP is an alternative to the better known photovoltaic technology, which produces electricity directly from sunlight.
