Apparatus, systems, and method utilize a fluidized bed of solid particles to collect concentrated solar thermal energy in a compact receiver. Once energy is absorbed, these very hot particles are stored in a containment vessel. Heat is transferred to an air or other fluid stream and the stream is directed to a power generator or other unit.
