Electricity markets are changing because of (1) the addition of wind and solar and (2) the goal of a low-carbon economy. This results in times of low and high prices that reduces revenue for reactors that produce base-load electricity. The addition of heat storage enables GenIV reactors operating at base-load to produce variable electricity to the grid that increases revenue and produces the variable electricity that the electricity grid needs. Heat storage costs are an order-of-magnitude less than electricity storage technologies (batteries, etc.). The workshop explores the technical and institutional challenges of heat storage to develop a path forward. The higher temperatures of GenIV reactors substantially reduces the cost of storage relative to LWRs—providing a large incentive for their development. The workshop includes the concentrated solar power (CSP) community that is developing many of the same heat storage systems for the same reasons.
