- Energy 101: Concentrating Solar Power From towers to dishes to linear mirrors to troughs, concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies reflect and collect solar heat to generate electricity. A single CSP plant can generate enough power for about 90,000 homes. This video explains what CSP is, how it works, and how systems like parabolic troughs produce renewable power.
- Energy Department Announces Projects to Advance Cost-Effective Concentrating Solar Power Systems and 2014 CONCENTRATING SOLAR POWER REPORT Concentrating solar power (CSP) is a technology that harnesses the sun’s energy potential and has the capacity to provide renewable energy to hundreds of thousands of customers in the United States. This report discusses how 2014 marks a significant milestone in the history of American solar energy—with five U.S. Department of Energy-funded CSP plants expected to be fully operational by the end of the year.
