Concentrated Solar Power increasing cumulative global capacity more than 11% to just under 5.5 GW in 2018

An estimated 550 MW of concentrating solar thermal power (CSP) came online in 2018, increasing cumulative global capacity more than 11% to just under 5.5 GW. CSP is also known as solar thermal electricity (STE). This annual increase represents the largest gain since 2014, and it occurred despite delays [...]

Reliance commissions 100 MW concentrated solar power plant in Rajasthan, India

It is the second plant in India to use concentrated solar power technology. Rajasthan Sun Technique Energy, a subsidiary of Reliance Power, has commissioned its 100 MW concentrated solar power (CSP) plant.

Lark Energy nets patent for new concentrated solar power technology

Lark Energy has secured a UK patent for a new renewable solar thermal technology to create steam for industrial processes. The technology uses a Fresnel lens to concentrate solar irradiation, which in turn heats tubes containing water. The resulting steam is then collected for use in applications that would otherwise [...]
