CSP is a dispatchable renewable electricity technology (RET) which might contribute substantially to a sustainable energy transition especially in countries with high solar irradiation (DNI), in tandem with an increasing penetration of variable RETs. According to the IEA (2014), it could represent as much as 11% of electricity generation in 2050, with 954 GW of installed capacity (up from 5 GW today) […]
