A new company called SolarReserve will be created to "provide heat-resistant pumps and other equipment, as well as the expertise in handling and storing salt that has been heated to more than 1,050 degrees Fahrenheit."

Molten Salt storage is already used in Nevada's Solar Onepower plant. Is this be the post-hidrocarbon world finally knocking?"
