California leads U.S. in solar energy installations, PV and Concentrated Solar Power

California became the first state to generate more than 5% of its electricity from utility solar power, according a new report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).

California saw three concentrated solar power plants come fully online in 2014

California saw three concentrated solar power plants come fully online in 2014: the Genesis project in Riverside County and the Ivanpah and Mojave projects in San Bernardino County.

2014, the biggest year ever for Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) in United States

Abengoa secures PPA for its Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) and Photovoltaic (PV) plants in Chile

Abengoa is currently developing two concentrated solar power (CSP) plants, 110 MW each, with tower technology coupled with a thermal energy storage system based on molten salts.

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.

Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) with storage cheaper than photovoltaic (PV) with batteries

Abengoa is now evaluating a new design that could reduce proposed capacity but plans Palen Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) as a single tower including thermal energy storage.

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.
