Molten Salt Thermal Energy Storage

In 2011, Changzhou Sunhome Solar Water Heater Manufacture Co., Ltd. established a solar thermal electrical power storage research & development center in Changzhou science city. The R&D team comprises of 20 members including one Professor, one Doctor, six graduates and twelve undergraduates. The test facilities covering 4000 sq.m consists of high temperature storage tank, large scale molten salt heat exchanger, transmission & control of molten salt.
