Concentrating Solar Power Program Overview

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


DOE's Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) program is collaborating with its partners in the private sector to develop two new solar technologies-power towers and dish/engines-to meet the huge commercial potential for solar power. Concentrating solar power plants produce electric power by first converting the sun's energy into heat, and then to electricity in a conventional generator.
