CSP Feed-in Tariffs Guide (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 12, 2012

Written to support CSP Today’s 2011 concentrated solar power (CSP) event in Seville, this report provides an overview of the regulatory incentives schemes that exist to support the concentrated solar thermal industry around the world. It summarises the incentives and targets for CSP in nine countries: USA, South Africa, India, Spain, Morocco, Italy, Greece, and Portugal. For each, the feed-in tariffs, tax credits, or subsidies are specified and explained by different industry experts.

Assessment of the Techno-Economic Potential of CSP for Electricity and Desalination in Mediterranean Partner Countries (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on October 22, 2010

This document is one of the deliverables of the MED-CSD project. The main aim of this FP7 project is the assessment of the technico-economic potential of CSP for electricity and desalination in the Mediterranean region.

The document explores the demand for water and electricity in the Mediterranean and assesses the market potential of CSP in a number of countries (Cyprus, Egypt, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Jordan, Israel, Syria, Turkey and Lebanon).

Thematic Review of GEF-Financed Solar Thermal Projects (2001)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on September 7, 2009

This paper reports the developments of four projects financed by the UN Global Environment Facility (GEF) in India, Morocco, Mexico and Egypt. The GEF chose those countries to develop solar thermal power technology as it has shown to be one of the most cost efficient options for renewable bulk power production, besides being the most cost-effective way of producing electricity from solar radiation.

International Technology Collaboration and Climate Change Mitigation - Case Study 1: CSP technologies (2004)

Submitted by Hans Craen on July 29, 2009

This case study from 2004 was prepared by the OECD and IEA secretariats and reviews past and current experiences in international collaboration in the field of CSP technologies. In addition to identifying the success stories and the failures of CSP related international collaboration, the case study also lists four important lessons:

1) International collaboration may help, but domestic policy decisions remain decisive

2) In technology transfer non-financial barriers must not be underestimated

Assessment of the World Bank/GEF Strategy for the Market Development of Concentrating Solar Thermal Power (2006)

Submitted by Hans Craen on May 11, 2009

This report from 2006 gives a detailed assessment on the approach of GEF towards concentrating solar power development. In particular it looks into the GEF's Operational Programme 7 (OP 7) which deals with the development of technologies with low greenhouse gas emissions that are not yet commercial, but which show promise of becoming so in the future.

Emerging Technology Option for Clean Power Generation - Concentrated Solar Power (2009)

Submitted by Hans Craen on May 5, 2009

This 2009 paper underlines the overall benefits of solar power especially when considered as part of a country or region's energy generation options mix. In addition to listing the available technologies, the document also looks into the economics of solar thermal and provides a summary comparison among parabolic through, central receiver and parabolic dish technologies.

Perspectives for Concentrating Solar Power in Coastal Areas of Mediterranean Sea

Submitted by Hans Craen on May 4, 2009

This paper looks into the possible applications of CSP on the coastal areas of the mediterranean region. Starting with providing a short overview on the available CSP technologies, the document also looks into what the potential and market perspectives are for this technology.
