Abstract

Advances in cost reduction for renewable energy have resulted in a rapid uptake of PV & Wind in the Australian energy market. This increase in variable energy supply and further cost reduction in concentrated solar power (CSP) have sparked an increased interest for CSP as an alternative solar energy. Recent studies suggest that with the aging fossil fuel fleet and the reduced cost for renewable energy there will be a demand for CSP synchronous power generation in Australia. What needs to be done to get us there?
