SolarPACES—Solar Power and Chemical Energy Systems—has compiled data on concentrating solar power (CSP) projects around the world.
SolarPACES: Concentrated Solar Power has increased its share in the main two reference countries, by Luis Crespo
SolarPACES is playing an essential role in the development of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) technologies.
Of particular relevance in this conference’s edition has been the interest and support expressed by the Chinese authorities to the development of CSP in China.
Torresol Energy and SENER's professionals from the CSP sector will present several technical papers at the conference.
