Manganese–iron binary oxide for solar thermochemical energy storage

Marziyeh Hamidi

The Australian National University

Marziyeh Hamidi is currently a final year Ph.D student at the Australian National University, based in Canberra, Australia. She obtained her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Shiraz University, where she worked on latent heat thermal energy storage and Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. Her latest research work, in close collaboration with the University of Colorado (Boulder) in the United States, is on the topic of high temperature thermochemical energy storage for concentrated solar power.


Electricity can be generated from heat stored in molten salt for less than $0.03/kWhel, which is far less than an aggressive $0.10/kWhel estimate for future battery storage1. Although numerous metal oxide systems have been... [ view full abstract ]
