Concentrating Solar Power (CSP)

The Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) program conducts research to reduce costs and identify opportunities for improvement of CSP technologies, advance understanding of CSP system behavior, increase efficiency and capacity for baseload CSP applications, and reduce risk for CSP technologies and increased levels of concentrating solar power in the transmission grid. The program [...]

R&D Activities

The first step in a concentrating solar power system is to “collect” and focus the sunlight using a large array of mirrors, or collectors. Different configurations of mirrors can be used depending on the type of CSP technology being employed. CSP system technologies include dish, parabolic trough, linear Fresnel, and central receiver (power tower) systems. [...]
