CSP Study & Comments



Shouhang Dunhuang 100MW Molten Salt Tower CSP Plant


Updated CSP Focus report specifically on China one of 1st Batch of Pilot CSP Projects---Shouhang Dunhuang 100MW molten salt tower CSP Plant, which will be completed by the end of this month.


China 1st Batch of CSP Pilot Projects Update


Updated CSP Focus report on the overall situation of China 1st Batch of CSP Pilot Projects and and detailed progress of the plants.


China encourage new CSP technologies in 1st batch demos


One of the inherent targets of the implementation of China 1st batch of CSP pilot projects is to encourage the application of new CSP technologies. CSP Focus hereby list 6 kinds of CSP innovations, and 8 typical demos taking these technologies.



CSP as an engine of job creation


CSP is known to be more labor intensive. Much of the work required to build a CSP plant needs be performed locally. The largest contribution to job creation happens when a CSP plant is under construction. And when the plant is ready, a significant number of workers are required to carry out essential operation and maintenance (O&M) during the lifespan of the plant.


IRP: ‘Gas should make some space for CSP’


The finalisation of South Africa’s Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) will unlock further investment in renewable energy, but the exclusion of new concentrated solar power (CSP) projects from the country’s future energy mix may have serious unintended consequences.
