Concentrating solar power (CSP) based on liquid metals as heat transfer fluid (HTF) offers a technically attractive option for compact efficiently operating power stations, which can flexibly provide heat and/or power to different grids at a simultaneous small resource footprint. Based on long experiences in research and development, the utilization of liquid metals not only reduce investment and operational costs due to the excellent properties for heat transfer and storage [1] but also allow… Expand
