Southern Research plans to commission by October 2017 a 1 MWh(th) energy storage demonstration unit using its high temperature thermochemical technology, following a recent funding boost from the US Department of Energy.

The Alabama-based developer was one of 14 research groups which were awarded in September a combined $32 million from the US Department of Energy’s SunShot plan. The federal program funds projects which tackle CSP subsystem issues with the aim of reducing the levelized cost of electricity.
