Concentrated solar power (CSP) with storage could fill the gaps in intermittent renewable generation

Ivanpah is the largest concentrated solar power (CSP) plant in the world. Unlike traditional solar photovoltaic panels — which convert sunlight directly into electricity — concentrating solar power technology uses sunlight to heat water or another liquid, ultimately creating steam that can be used to turn turbines and generate electricity. Concentrated solar power has a […]
