Concentrated Solar Power is expected to grow 87% until 2023

Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) is expected to grow 87% (4.3 GW) over the forecast period, 32% more than in 2012‑17. China leads at 1.9 GW, followed by 1 GW from Concentrated Solar Power projects receiving multilateral development bank support in Morocco and South Africa, 1 GW in the Middle East, and 300 MW each [...]

Can China’s Concentrated Solar Power Developers Deliver the National Program?

China’s CSP industry is going through a steep learning curve. Two years ago, in September 2016, the National Energy Administration (NEA) selected 20 CSP demonstration projects totaling 1.35 GW and committed to a Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) of 1.15 RMB/kWh for plants that come online by the end of 2018. MW [...]
