  2. 2. Report highlights Currently there are 679 MW of installed CSP capacity worldwide and more than 2000 MW under construction. The USA is the Global Concentrated Solar Power Industry Report market leader in terms of installed capacity with 63% market 20010-2011 share, followed by Spain with 32% of operating capacity. These two markets will continue to be crucial for the development of the industry into the next decade, with Spain accounting for the largest share of projects under construction with almost 89%. In terms of the technology employed, the market is dominated by Parabolic Trough technology, which accounts for 88% of operating plants and 97.5% of projects under construction. The solar field represents the largest share of the cost of any CSP plant. Depending on the technology this cost could vary from around 43% for Tower and Fresnel technology, to almost 60% for Parabolic Trough and Dish Stirling CSP plants. The most significant cost reductions are likely to come about by innovations in solar field design, which could bring down the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) by 15 to 28% depending on the technology. Experience in Spain has shown that the electricity demand curve almost matches the electricity production curve of a CSP plant. Seasonal variations in solar resources have an effect on the number of hours a CSP plant operates, reducing operating time by almost two hours in winter. This problem can be mitigated by using thermal storage technologies, which would allow CSP to generate electricity during cloudy periods and through the night why buy the report ■ Identify the main opportunities and risks involved in investing in CSP ■ Make informed decisions on which technologies and markets you’ll invest in to achieve the highest returns ■ 100% impartial, reliable and relevant information you need to turn your understanding of the market into action ■ Written by engineering consultants with experience in real CSP projects ■ Save time and money – All the data you need without the hard work of sourcing it ■ Packed with relevant graphs, illustrations and tables for easy reading ■ 200+ pages full of reliable information ■ A vital guide to the CSP industry you can use at your convenience Act now pre-order today and secure your €400 off discount
