Concentrating Solar Power : Data & Directions for an Emerging Solar Technology Hardback
Edited by Burt J. Alexander, Ted F. Richardson
As the world looks for low-carbon sources of energy, solar power stands out as the single most abundant energy resource on Earth.
This book focuses on the capacity value of concentrating solar power plants and presents detailed information about solar resource data and the resulting data products needed for each stage of the concentrating solar power project, from initial site selection to systems operations.
It also examines the degree to which concentrating solar power may be complimentary to solar photovoltaic via its use of thermal energy storage.
