Concentrated Solar Power increasing cumulative global capacity more than 11% to just under 5.5 GW in 2018

An estimated 550 MW of concentrating solar thermal power (CSP) came online in 2018, increasing cumulative global capacity more than 11% to just under 5.5 GW. CSP is also known as solar thermal electricity (STE). This annual increase represents the largest gain since 2014, and it occurred despite delays in several projects that had been … Continue reading Concentrated Solar Power increasing cumulative global capacity more than 11% to just under 5.5 GW in 2018

Thermal Energy Storage

Thermal energy storage (TES) is an often unrecognized but important component of the developing market for energy storage systems. Most often used to provide cooling capacity for commercial buildings, TES systems are also increasingly seen as an effective means of shifting electricity use from daytime peak periods into less expensive periods of the day or … Continue reading Thermal Energy Storage
