ALLEIMA: Innovation shaping the future of solar power

Alleima together with division Kanthal are participating in the EU-funded Nextower project, contributing with vital materials expertise for future solar power technology.

In the project, new innovative materials and components has been developed for the next generation of concentrated solar power (CSP) tower systems.

Today, the most common method of harvesting solar energy is photovoltaic solar (PV), which uses solar cells to convert sunlight directly into electrical power. A CSP tower, on the other hand, uses mirrors and lenses to concentrate sunlight towards a solar receiver, which is then used to generate and store high-temperature heat through a heat transfer fluid. This heat can then be used immediately either to produce electricity through a steam generator or a hybrid gas turbine or to supply process heat to industry. Remarkably, this heat can also be stored for later use on demand.
