CSP Technology for Solar Thermal Applications
Decades of operating experience, innovation, and manufacturing investment have drastically reduced the cost of solar collector fields for utility CSP electricity generation. Among CSP technologies, parabolic trough systems are particularly well-suited for application to other thermal processes.
State-of-the-art CSP trough collectors are mature, utility-grade designs with performance and reliability that far surpass earlier custom-developed process heat collector systems, and over the last 15 years alone CSP trough costs have fallen by ~50%.
We offer low-cost CSP-derived collector and energy storage solutions that are well suited for large industrial processes (typically >5MWth constant demand) that require low or intermediate temperature thermal energy (60-400°C).
