Seven Days of Solar 1-29-12: The long term outlook is good for Concentrating Solar Power. N... #green #energy #news

Four approaches to the collection and use of the sun's heat energy are currently in use in CSP plants. Parabolic trough holds 93% of the installed base value. By 2015, that percentage is forecast to drop to 70% as power tower, also called central receiving station technology, becomes more common. The other two CSP technologies, linear Fresnel reflector and the Stirling engine/dish design, have only a few small projects going forward. CSP processes are known by several names: Concentrating or Concentrated Solar Power, Thermal Energy Storage, and Solar Thermal Power.
