2013 Lahmeyer REMIPEG Report: Solar Thermal

Download Type: Adobe PDF

The solar thermal power market is seeing growth after a period of uncertainty. At the end of 2013 there was approximately 3.8 GW of installed CSP capacity globally, and newly installed capacity increased more than 60% to roughly 1.17 GW last year.

The solar thermal market appears to be expanding at a fairly steady rate since a dip in newly installed capacity in 2011. A milestone in 2013 was the commissioning of the 377 MW (net) Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System in California, USA. Upon completion, the facility became the largest solar thermal power station in the world and one of the first to commercially apply power tower technology.
