... 12 2011 15 04 2013 A survey of hitherto concepts for cost reduction of heliostats is given. The survey might serve as a base for the development of low cost heliostats that are needed to meet the current challenging cost objectives. The concepts are related to the main heliostat...

... ). The costs for the additional components for modular storage integration are considerable and compensate a significant portion of the tremendous cost reduction in the storage side. Still, from Table 2 it can be seen that the modular concept is offering a decrease in the levelized energy costs of around 2...

...L. Amsbeck; R. Buck; A. Pfahl; R. Uhlig In standard heliostat design, the usual strategy of cost reduction is to increase the mirror area of the heliostats. This not only leads to a reduction of specific drive cost but also to an increase of the torques caused by the wind loads, resulting in higher...
