Report - National Workshop on Solar Thermal Power Generation (2008)

Submitted by Hans Craen on July 30, 2009

This is a report from the 2008 Indian national workshop on solar thermal power generation. The workshop was sponsored by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy and discussed various issues related to solar thermal generation in India.

The report recognises that India faces a significant gap between electricity demand and supply. One of the options to close this gap is through solar energy. However, before solar thermal is a viable alternative for the Indian energy supply, some obstacles need to be overcome.
