photo from BrightSource Energy Concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies that use mirrors instead of photovoltaic (PV) panels are challenging to finance . CSP is a newer technology that is just starting to bring down costs through economies of scale and improved efficiencies. But there is a compelling rationale for concentrating technologies. PV doesn’t entirely answer the needs of the transmission system, while CSP with thermal energy storage (TES) can. “Dispatchable CSP can discharge from storage to serve high-price peak loads that occur outside the daylight hours, including the late afternoon and early evening," according to BrightSource Director of Economic and Pricing Analysis Dr. Udi Helman. The value of this extra peak power makes CSP more competitive “by several dollars per megawatt-hour.” PV cannot be dialed up or down, whereas by channeling more or less CSP ou...
