Norbert Anger, Site Manager of MAN Energy Solutions in Deggendorf, said: “Already today, renewable sources supply almost 50% of the German electricity mix with this set to rise to at least 65% by 2030. Storage solutions will therefore play an increasingly central role in ensuring a reliable and efficient energy-supply. Molten-salt circuits already have large storage capacities and can store energy, for example from renewable-energy sources, for a particularly long time and at low cost.”
Molten-Salt Energy Storage (MAN MOSAS) uses salt as a storage medium. For this purpose, the salt is first heated to a temperature of, typically, 565°C and then fed into a hot storage tank.
