NEXTOWER - H2020

NEXTOWER will embrace a global research approach and develop a package of innovative materials to boost the performance of air-based concentrated solar power (CSP) systems to make them commercially competitive by 2020.
The project is to design and test a volumetric  air  receiver and lead storage system that will reduce the cost of energy production while improving its stability and time. The Consortium gathers a unique combination of excellence in materials science, design and manufacturing (ENEA, LIQTECH, ENGICER, SANDVIK, KTH, GCSP), joining and qualification (POLITO, CALEF, CERTIMAC), multi-scale  thermo-structural characterization and modelling (ICCRAM, University of Oxford), CSP full-scale testing facilities (CIEMAT, ENEA), and innovation management experts (WARRANT, R2M).
