    US DOE Funds Terrafore's Phase Change Energy Storage Test - SolarPACES

     

    The US Department of Energy (DOE) has released funding to the Argonne National Laboratory for a scaled-up round of independent testing of Terrafore Technologies’ innovative encapsulated thermal energy storage in phase change salts, designed to operate in temperatures to greater than 800°C in a single tank that acts as both storage and heat exchanger. Argonne scientists approached CEO Anoop Mathur to submit an application when they heard of the potential awards under the SBV program.
