NREL Finds Up to 6-cent per Kilowatt-Hour Extra Value with Concentrated Solar Power

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) projects would add additional value of 5 or 6 cents per kilowatt hour to utility-scale solar energy in California where 33 percent renewables will be mandated in six years.

SRI, DOE to conduct Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) research

SRI has signed an agreement with the US DOE to conduct jointly-funded research to support development of high-temperature thermochemical energy storage systems for concentrating solar power (CSP).

Brightsource Energy Palen Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) project back on track

Plans for two 750-foot-tall concentrated solar power towers in eastern Riverside County are under consideration again, the state announced Thursday.

Supersize Concentrated Solar Power – On The World Stage, It Pays To Go Big

The Spanish influence on the concentrated solar power (CSP) market is clear to see. Spanish names appear in all the consortiums of most of the international bids - and they win them, too.

U.S. Solar Energy Capacity (PV and Concentrated Solar Power) Grew 418 Percent In The Last Four Years

EIA notes the rise of solar thermal projects, namely concentrated solar power. This sector represented just 400 MW total capacity, but expanded significantly when three large facilities representing 650 MW.

Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) could be cheaper and a more constant source of power than PV cells

Now that the world’s largest concentrated solar power (CSP) plant is operational in California’s Mojave Desert, the question is whether it will prove its mettle and whether more of those facilities will crop up.
