Concentrating Solar Power Market was valued at US$ 5 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12% over the forecast period (2021-2027).Concentrating solar power (CSP) relies on concentrating the sun’s rays through the use of mirrors to create high temperature heat to drive a steam turbine. In the majority of today’s systems, the sun’s energy is transferred to a fluid, which in turn is passed through heat exchangers to run a traditional electricity steam cycle, similar to the one used in conventional thermal power plants. CSP plants can also have thermal storage systems. Often, a two-tank molten salt storage system is used, but designs vary. Since steam turbines can only be operated economically above a certain minimum size, today’s solar thermal power plants have rated outputs in the range of 50 to 200 megawatts. The main difference to a conventional steam power plant is the solar field, which supplies the heat for the steam generator. As per IRENA, Cumulative CSP installed capacity grew just over five-fold, globally, between 2010 and 2020, reaching around 6.5 GW at the end of 2020. After modest activity in 2016 and 2017 – with annual additions hovering around 100 MW per year – the global market for CSP grew in 2018 and 2019.
The Global Concentrating Solar Power Market is experiencing significant growth due to increasing environmental concerns over carbon emission, policy support from government to adopt renewable technologies, and rise in energy demand along with their inherent thermal storage capacity are the key factors complementing the Concentrating Solar Powers market.
Abengoa, S.A., BrightSource Energy, Inc., Aalborg CSP, Siemens Energy, Acciona, S.A. etc. are some of the prominent players operating in the Global Concentrating Solar Power Market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate countries with more innovative Concentrating Solar Power applications.
