CSP & SOLAR THERMAL

A proven and available renewable energy source

We provide independent Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) system advice from some of the leading experts in this field. From in-depth market analysis and policy advice to concept and detailed system designs, we can help you structure your CSP project and get it moving.

As part of a future energy portfolio, CSP systems provide:

  • Dispatchable energy supply: CSP with storage has the capability to dispatch electricity in the range of baseload to peaking power, an essential complement to variable renewable sources.
  • Lower emission conventional power plants: CSP can be efficiently integrated into existing and new coal and gas power plants to reduce emissions and extend plant life for a least-cost transition to a low-emission energy future.
  • Emission reduction: 10 GW of capacity would reduce Australia‚Äôs emissions by roughly 30 megatonnes (Mt) CO2 per year, about 15% of current electricity sector emissions.
  • Clean energy sector growth: Australia has world-leading solar resources, and CSP would allow us to claim a significant place in the global clean energy supply chain. Delaying action could see that opportunity missed.
  • Community-supported generation: CSP is low-impact, with limited land and water needs. Every 100 MW system would also create around 500 job years during construction and 20 jobs during operation, mostly in regional areas.
  • Potential for future solar fuels: Emerging technology will convert solar energy to liquid fuels, supplied at scale to both domestic and export markets.
