Brayton Energy has received award notification for a contract through the Small Business Innovative Research Initiative (SBIR). The Phase II project will continue result in field testing of a low-cost, highly reliable flexible coupler critical to the success of molten nitrate salt thermal storage systems for current concentrated solar power trough systems. The novel design address chronic problems experienced in the field with an innovative flex-joint coupler between the tracking solar trough and the stationary salt storage system.
