Concentrated solar power market: Rising concerns over fossil fuel depletion and awareness about global warming will spur the industry growth

Posted on Updated on

Concentrated solar power market is gaining an edge successfully in improving profitability and developing new revenue streams. Growth of the concentrated solar power industry is increasingly being driven by government policies aimed at reducing GHG emissions and balancing the fossil fuel depletion. For instance, the U.S. treasury department and the state government have awarded tax credits to CPS projects which make use of clean energy. Another prominent example is the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, which provided funds of approximately USD 9 million to 6 CSP projects to achieve a substantial reduction in the prices and ensure technological advancements.

The mounting need for efficient renewable energy sources for large scale electricity generation, owing to rapid industrialization and urbanization is likely to propel the global concentrated solar power industry. As per a report by Global Market Insights Inc., Concentrated Solar Power Market is anticipated to exceed 24 GW by 2025.
