Page 1-1 - The Office of Power Technologies should limit or halt its research and development on power-tower and power-trough technologies because further refinements would not lead to deployment.
Page D-35 - The thermocline uses a single tank that is slightly larger than one of the tanks in the twotank system. A low-cost filler material, which is used to pack the single storage tank, acts as the primary thermal storage medium. The filler displaces the majority of the salt in the two-tank system.
