Is concentrated solar power (CSP) forecast to contribute to energy storage over the next five years?

In addition to PSH and battery storage, concentrated solar power can provide large-scale energy storage, but the way CSP solar thermal storage characteristics differ from those of PSH and stationary batteries prevents direct comparison. Nonetheless, most concentrated solar power plants deployed over the outlook period are expected to include thermal [...]

Protermosolar highlights the necessary role of concentrated solar power to curb climate change

Luis Crespo, president of Protermosolar, has presented in the plenary session a report that shows that the concentrated solar power allows to reduce the need for fossil fuel backup. The XXIV edition of SolarPACES was held in Casablanca (Morocco), with the participation of more than 550 attendees from 41 different [...]

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 [...]

Solar energy leads the charge in another record year for renewables

Boosted by a strong solar PV market, renewables accounted for almost two-thirds of net new power capacity around the world in 2016, with almost 165 gigawatts (GW) coming online. This was another record year, largely as a result of booming solar PV deployment in China and around the world, driven [...]

IEA: Solar energy, PV and Concentrated Solar Power, could dominate electricity by 2050

IEA Reports said solar photovoltaic (PV) systems could generate up to 16 percent of the world's electricity by 2050, while concentrated solar power plants could provide a further 11 percent.

IEA Repeats Positive View For Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)

Photovoltaic solar power seems to get most of the attention when it comes to solar, but concentrated solar power electricity from concentrating solar power plants has also improved a lot in the last five years.
