Abstract

Solar ponds, limited shallow areas, overlay a dark layer where solar radiation is absorbed. The internal thermal convection phenomenon due to heating is cancelled by the action of an adequate vertical density gradient created by salt dissolving. This gradient has to be kept up against the saline diffusion. The operating process provides a method for collecting and storing solar energy on a large scale. The CNEXO is interested in trying to transform isolated marine natural areas into solar ponds with power order of 100 kW. An experimentation has been launched to specify technical feasability and economical rentability of solar ponds by use of an artificial basin (1000 m) set up near Montpellier.
