The potential role of concentrating solar power in enabling high renewables scenarios in the United States
The potential role of concentrating solar power in enabling high renewables scenarios in the United States

1st October 2012

Topic(s): Solar energy

This work describes the analysis of concentrating solar power (CSP) in earlier studies and the potential role of CSP in a future energy mix. Section 2 provides an overview previous studies, including overall goals and modeled scenarios. Section 3 details the modeling tools used for the studies and the implementation of CSP in the analysis. Section 4 provides the range of CSP deployments in the various scenarios studied, as well as key drivers behind CSP deployment. Overall the studies found a range of opportunities for CSP deployment, largely dependent on reduced technology costs, the ability to construct new transmission, and appropriate valuation of CSP capacity and flexibility, especially in scenarios where the system becomes highly dependent on variable renewable sources such as solar photovoltaics (PV) and wind.

Concentrating solar power in India
Concentrating solar power in India

13th April 2011

Topic(s): Solar energy

This report was commissioned by the Australian Government’s Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency (DCCEE), with the cooperation of the Government of India’s Ministry for New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).

This report analyses the context, barriers and policy options for the growth of the concentrating solar power (CSP) industry in India, for use by government policy and program implementation staff in both countries. It may also be of interest to others such as CSP developers and investors.
