The heat can not only flow directly into the thermal power plant but can also be stored within a thermal storage. This storage is characterised by relative low storage losses (high storage efficiencies) and relatively low costs. If properly designed with the right size the storage can make electricity production cheaper since it allows for the installation of lower rated power of the conventional steam power plant which is – up to a certain storage capacity – specifically more expensive than the corresponding capacity of the thermal storage. With thermal storage solar thermal power plants can generate solar electricity day and night.
