Now is the time to seize CSP market share

Global CSP markets are changing faster than ever... with technical track record established in Spain and the US and international markets quickly opening up to CSP, now is the time to scale up your CSP business ready for the surge in financing, bid-winning and project inception around the globe.

CSP's dispatchability, increased efficiency and track record in innovation has led to recent projections that by 2050, with appropriate support, CSP could provide 11.3% of global electricity, with 9.6% from solar power and 1.7% from backup fuels (fossil fuels or biomass). CSP project developers, EPCs and suppliers are fast realising they need to innovate, internationalise and prove CSP's commercial profitability more than ever; the race is on to get ahead of the competition in funding, project development, cost and plant performance. Having very latest developments and having the ability to react accordingly has never been so crucial.

Knowledge is power

You need digestible, consolidated and up-to-date information to be able to take advantage of these enormous opportunities - from in-depth technical data and plant information to market and policy figures. Until now, CSP companies had only piecemeal information on ‘where the industry's at'. Taken from news articles, press releases and events, information is at best incomplete, and at worst unreliable and out of date. Getting a comprehensive overview of the projects around the world, securing insider insight into the new markets that will be a perfect fit for your business and procuring truly digestible information on policies and incentives has been a pipe dream for developers, EPCs and suppliers alike.

Online access to a wealth of CSP experience

The CSP Today Global Tracker has been designed after the industry told us that they needed an ‘in-house consultant', who not only had direct access to the technical and market data that mattered, but who could analyse that data effectively, so that their companies could strategize at the speed that this market demands.

So we've created the opportunity for you to have access to both accurate data and expert analysis, but without the cost of an in-house consultant. The CSP Today Global Tracker is an online resource, which updates as soon as something changes, and provides in-depth evaluations of those changes, meaning that you can react to them effectively.

Made up of several tools including:

  • Project Tracker: Get comprehensive pipeline visibility to streamline your business development and get ahead of the CSP curve.
  • Markets & Policy Tracker: Complete information to help you demystify the policies and trends that will make or break your strategy in both established and emerging markets for CSP.
  • Premium content: Access to unique evaluation of topical news with overarching analysis of the impact on your business, taken directly from our projects and markets tracker for your benefit.
  • Quarterly Update: Your quarterly digest of data and analysis on the most recent developments in the CSP industry
  • Annual reports: Highly researched indepth analysis on the CSP markets and technology developments.

This online business tool is critical to your business to save the time, money and manpower that you can now reallocate to getting your plants online, your projects developed and your products sold. Subscribe today and get access to the wealth of knowledge that already exists in the CSP industry to seize more market share and guarantee project success.


To do business in the CSP market, you need to have technical information about regional or global plants at your fingertips: unlike other renewable energy online databases, the CSP Today Project Tracker is compiled by CSP experts specifically for you, the CSP industry.

CSP Today Project Tracker

Here's just a taster of the 100+ categories of information contained in this database for every plant in the world.

Each Plant Profile contains:

  • Technical information: including (but not limited to) technology, megawatt range, heat transfer fluid, operating pressure, storage temperature and coordinates (latitude/ longitude) and much more

Furthermore, compiling and analyzing international information so that your business can identify the biggest opportunities to succeed in both new and existing markets is an ominous task, which is why the CSP Today Global Tracker offers a digestible guide to the CSP industry, meaning that at a glance you can see where you should be placing your time, money and manpower.

Project Tracker data verification method
