H2020 NEXTOWER Project – Objectives


Solar towers are atmospheric-air CSP systems that represent the best short-term option for large scale power generaton. To make them competitive, new materials are needed to meet requirements in the following critical aspects:

  • High temperature receivers (durability & emissivity)
  • Thermal fatigue and thermal shock (especially in joints)
  • Thermal storage by liquid metals, e.g. lead-based systems (corrosion issues, efficiency and max working temperature)Thermal fatigue and thermal shock (especially in joints)
