“High cost”, has long been a label cited by those who are somewhat against CSP development and surely, we CSP industry players can’t deny that we still have a long way to go in cost reduction so as to make CSP much more competitive in other global energy structure. Proudly speaking, CSP players never stop striving to achieve lower cost and higher efficiency from every detail of the value chain.
“Cost of electricity from CSP plants is highly dependent on the location and size along with PPA terms and financing conditions. A combination of innovation, component prices and soft costs (permitting, financing, engineering …) reduction will be key for competitiveness. ” Dr. Luis Crespo, President of ESTELA & General Secretary of Protermosolar shares the same idea with CSP Focus, who will organize CSP Focus Innovation 2016 (June29-30, Madrid) with the theme of “Consolidate CSP competitiveness by innovation on technology, financing and O&M.”
Owning around 30% of world operational CSP plants, Spain undoubtedly gathers world leading CSP developers/EPCs, technicians, consultancies, operators and component designers and manufacturers. At the very moment of global innovation, CSP Focus will organize an industry innovation gathering in Madrid—CSP Focus Innovation 2016 (June 29~30th, Spain), bringing 200+ senior industry executives an amazing platform to witness the most advanced technologies and assisting you on the way to be excellent and leading in CSP industry.
