Can CSP Settle in India?

Can CSP Settle in India?

Coal dominates the Indian power sector currently, with a large portion of the fuel supply being imported; however, there is diversification to natural gas. Biomass use, for cooking and heat, has traditionally been a large fraction of primary energy, but is essentially static in absolute terms and so is becoming a decreasing part of the total. Oil consumption, largely for the transport sector, is growing at a commensurate rate and the country is heading towards relying on imports for 90 percent of its oil. Natural gas consumption is also growing; it is understood that domestic sources are constrained and imports now account for approximately 25 percent of consumption. SOLAR RESOURCES Maps from NASA and Meteonorm show a range of approximately 1800-2200 kWh/m2 /year for DNI across India, an annual DNI resource comparable to the best European sites such as Spain, though lower ...
