The concentrated solar power industry is bound to be one of the biggest and most efficient in the coming times ahead. If utilized to its full potential, it could end up providing for the world's 25% energy needs by 2050. Currently, there is over 25 GW of installed CSP capacity worldwide and more than 2000 MW under development.
The CSP industry must continue to focus on lowering cost through deployment and technology improvement, particularly efficiency. Those cost reductions must also be clearly demonstrated to stakeholders. Major cost reductions will be achieved by capturing the lessons of early deployment. The CSP Industry should work pro-actively to leverage the lessons gained from publically funded early deployment to ensure they flow to the widest possible base within the constraints of competitive markets.
Concentrating solar power's relatively low cost and ability to deliver power during periods of peak demand - when and where it's needed - means that it can be a major contributor to the world's future needs for distributed sources of energy.
This report analyzes the Global Market for Concentrated Solar Power 2020. This research report is a comprehensive analytical compilation which analyzes the global market for CSP along with an analysis of the key markets.
The report begins by taking a look at solar power and the impact of global climate change as well as the challenge of carbon emissions facing the world. It moves on to introduce the concept of concentrated solar power (CSP). We also explain the various types of CSP technologies available today.
