CSP is a viable option to make up for intermittent generation defects

However, the research focus of R & D personnel is not limited to thermal storage CSP, but more concerned with the overall development of future energy systems.

According to Philipp Stöcker, associate researcher at the Laboratory of Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Energy Storage Systems, Institute of Power Electronics and Electric Drives, RWTH Aachen University, due to the intermittent and fluctuating wind and photovoltaic power generation, Controlled and scalable electricity must play a bigger role to make up for the former's flaws.

Stöcker specializes in the design of computational tools to help optimize and analyze energy systems. In addition, he is involved in writing several papers, including: Assessing the value of CSP in fluctuating energy and power systems.

Stöcker explains: "The key point of the calculation tools we use is that you can not excessively adjust the basic power load in the grid because there are already a lot of fluctuating sources of electricity in the renewable energy grid, such as photovoltaic and wind power, which With uncontrollable features, the remaining power sources that need to bear the basic electrical load come from the power generation system with the energy storage system, then the entire power system can be balanced.
