|Published: October 1, 2013||Content info: 188 Pages||
Parabolic Trough technology currently accounts for 95% of the global installed CSP share, totalling at 2657 MW across 13 markets. Whilst the global project pipeline indicates that Parabolic Trough will retain market dominance (with 70% of the MW capacity under construction and 55% of the MW capacity under development), crucially the spread of market activity is set to proliferate; the collective reach of Parabolic Trough plants in operation, under construction and under development will permeate 19 markets.
The internationalization of CSP - along with the more enduring pursuits to secure cost reduction and performance optimization - has widely been tipped as a key route to navigating the challenges currently besetting the traditional CSP markets and to ultimately secure CSP's position as a globally viable and competitive power generation source. The success of the internationalization of Parabolic Trough technology alongside the growth of the technology in established markets will be highly contingent upon a greater degree of transparency surrounding market specific cost data from CAPEX to OPEX and performance characteristics and capabilities.
Through industry validated cost information, localised techno-economic analysis and inter-market benchmarking, this report brings unprecedented clarity on Parabolic Trough technology across 7 global markets enabling you to separate the fact from the hype.
