Power Towers for Utilities

Desirable Features of Power Towers for Utilities
Because of their practical energy storage, solar power towers have two features that are particularly desirable for utilities: flexible capacity factors and a high degree of dispatchability.
Power towers can be designed with annual capacity factors up to 60 percent, and as high as 80 percent in summer when the […]
