  • Concentrating Solar Power

    Technology Overview   By collecting solar energy during daylight hours and storing it in hot molten salt, concentrating solar power technologies like power towers give utilities an alternative method for meeting peak loads. (Warren Gretz)  Concentrating solar power plants produce electric power by converting the sun’s energy into high-temperature heat using ...

  • Two scenarios for a solar world economy

    Solar energy using Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) technology will become the most abundant source of renewable energy. The technology and the economics of CSP are explained. An overview is given for the deployed CSP capacity, the CSP capacity which is currently being built, and the planned capacity. We make the following assumptions: (1) The learning curve for CSP technology will finally lead to ...
