STE project survey on Concentrated Solar Power stakeholders mapping

We would like to invite you to take part in the CSP stakeholders mapping survey launched by the HORIZON-STE project to support the creation of consortia that will fulfil the SET-Plan goals by participating in R&I projects and/or First-of-a-Kind plants. HORIZON-STE is a Horizon2020 funded project aiming at supporting the [...]

Concentrated Solar Power Quietly Makes a Comeback

CSP’s costs are dropping as the market gains steam in the Middle East and China. Can this once-promising technology regain its mojo? Concentrated solar power (CSP), a renewable energy technology that has more or less dropped off the radar in the U.S., is quietly becoming [...]

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 [...]

The future of concentrated solar power (STE or CSP) in China

The Chinese Government’s recent launching of an ambitious strategic program to develop solar thermal power in the country will elevate it to a leading position by the year 2030, as well as will be serving as a basis for boosting this sector of renewables on a global scale. One of [...]

Guideline for bankable solar thermal energy yield assessment

Solar thermal energy (STE), often named Concentrating Solar  Power (CSP), is expected to play an important role in the world’s future electricity supply. Thermal energy storage, an essential part of a concentrating solar thermal power plant, allows for decoupling of solar energy harvest and subsequent electricity production. By this [...]
