Solar Jet Fuels Get Ready for Take-off

A Swiss startup is working on commercializing two routes to solar jet fuel with the help of Italy’s Eni, the 10th-largest oil company in the world. Synhelion plans to market aviation fuel in two stages; first, by 2022 to sell a solar jet fuel based on solar reforming of methane, [...]

Concentrated solar power could beat lower price PV with new market rules

Concentrated solar power can deliver greater grid stability than photovoltaics, but needs better recognition of its value to be competitive. Concentrated solar power's failure to gain momentum in U.S. markets is a signal that traditional resource valuations may be slowing the energy transition, a February CSP conference made clear. CSP, [...]
