The Concentrated Solar Power is the renewable one, between those that take advantage of the sun or the wind, that more electricity generates per MW installed since May in Spain

More concentrated solar power (CSP) with storage in the system would reduce the contribution of natural gas cycles and coal, which would lower the price of electricity in the wholesale market. Solar thermal energy is renewable, compared to wind energy and photovoltaic, which generates more electricity per MW installed since [...]
