US DOE Awarding Up To $62M for Concentrating Solar Power Research and Development

Green Car Congress

The US Department of Energy has selected 13 projects for investment of up to $62 million over five years to research, develop, and demonstrate Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) systems capable of providing low-cost electrical power. CSP plants can include low-cost energy storage, allowing them to provide electricity even when the sun is not shining. Instead of one central tower and receiver, the plant will employ multiple, modular towers.
