Concentrated Solar Power technologies: All you should know about the state of research

Do you know that there is a technology that lets you generate energy from sun even when the sky is cloudy or when it is raining?

Our fossil fuel sources are depleting at supersonic speed. Added to that, the increasing concern of containing greenhouse gas emission for which governments around the globe have introduced strict norms.

The two factors in conjunction will lead to further proliferation of Concentrated Solar Power technologies and its market share – Yes it lets you generate electricity on a cloudy day.

Concentrating Solar Power technology uses hundred or sometimes even thousands of mirrors to reflect sun rays to a small area to generate heat. This heat can then be used in thermal generators to generate electricity.

Parabolic Troughs System, the most common CSP system in the US, had global revenue of $27 billion in 2015. By 2025, the installed capacity of Parabolic Trough is expected to increase by three times and hence its market size.

A single CSP plant can power 7000 homes, for example. This makes it an ideal technology for utility scale solar market. Considering these facts in mind, we recently performed an analysis on patent filed in the CSP technology domain and plotted a technological landscape.

We plotted the landscape by keeping researchers working in the CSP domain and C level executives and department heads of companies that are exploring or want to explore the domain of Concentrated Solar Power.

We have condensed the insights from the patent landscape in the presentation embedded below. Once you go through the slides, you will have the following insights:
