‘Strategically plan your commercial trajectory and optimize profitability in the increasingly internationalized parabolic trough market'
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.
