On the Rise – Solar Thermal Power and the Fight Against Global Warming (2008)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 13, 2015

This report was put together by Environment America Research and Policy Center in 2008 and is about how the use of solar thermal technologies can help stop the threat of global warming. Electricity generation accounts for more than a third of America’s emissions of global warming pollution. Using concentrating solar power (CSP) can make a large contribution toward reducing global warming pollution in the United States. This document states the capacity in the States to expand its solar thermal market. It gives a short history of solar thermal power and the different technologies. It also mentions the potential for improving thermal storage to improve the economics of CSP plants – reducing the costs of producing power and increasing the value of that power to the electric grid.
