NREL is aimed at mitigating corrosion levels in CSP plants with nickel-based coatings


To store heat and generate electricity,the next-generation concentrating solar power (CSP) plants require high-temperature fluids, such as molten salts, in the range of 550-750 degrees Celsius . At those high temperatures, however, common alloys used in the heat exchangers, piping, and storage vessels of CSP systems are eaten away by …
