Promoting the benefits of concentrating solar power in the U.S.
Concentrating solar thermal power is a clean, reliable and cost-effective source of renewable energy. When coupled with proven and cost-effective thermal storage, CSP becomes an even more valuable resource, capable of serving as a foundation to a low-carbon and reliable electricity mix.
The Concentrating Solar Power Alliance (The CSP Alliance) consists of CSP developers and suppliers who advocate for the increasing acceptance, adoption and implementation of CSP technology and thermal energy storage.
The Alliance has been created to:
• Articulate the benefits and need for this technology through outreach and education activities;
• Create broad awareness of these benefits and need among key stakeholder groups, including regulators, utilities and policy makers; and
• Develop policy recommendations and support research to encourage and advance CSP technology deployment.
The CSP Alliance is an advocacy group whose membership is drawn from the world’s leading concentrating solar power technology companies and their supply chain partners.
The Alliance’s mission is to educate electricity market stakeholders on the industry’s unique value proposition as a foundational resource for a reliable, cost-effective and low-carbon electricity mix, and an engine for economic growth in areas where these technologies are deployed.
