The UAE Sand to Store Solar Energy

I have already posted about a massive solar plant Shams in the UAE. Today we write about a related news. Masdar Institute informed they have found the possibility to use sand as a medium to store the heat from the solar plant.

Sand can potentially replace synthetic oil and molten salts used in TES (thermal energy storage) systems. The higher working temperature leads to cost reduction of storing and transmitting the energy.


What impressed me in 2015

This post has nothing to do with lighting per se. These are just few things that have produced a big impact on me during the last twelve months.

– Novel The Garden of Forking Paths by Jorge Luis Borges

– Song Ya Balad by Bachar Mar-Khalife

– Movie Bajirao Mastani directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali

– Sensation of coming back to my hometown

– Free flight of an aerial flip in aikido

Happy New 2016!
