According to “Energy Technology Perspectives 2010” released by the International Energy Agency (IEA), by 2050, CSP would provide 11.3% of global electricity amounts to 1.089 billion KW installation capacities.
CSP has obvious and unique advantage compared with PV, wind power and other new energy. The three phase alternating current CSP generates can access to the grid directly, also the thermal storage characteristic can be used to achieve sustainable power generation, which makes fire power and nuclear power generation may be completely replaced in the future. Besides, each segment of the whole CSP industry chains is low-polluted and low energy consumption.
In the western countries, CSP got started since the early 1980s. Now some of the developed countries have grasped core technology and got into large-scale commercialization production phase. Since the inception of the new century, CSP was largely promoted in the U.S. and European countries as recovery industry, now The United States and Spain play leading roles in CSP industry, but in the future, emerging markets such as South America, Europe, North Africa, India, Australia, and China will also have huge market potential in the development of CSP industry. In China, according to “Solar Energy Power Generation Technology Development “the twelfth five-year” Special Plan” released by China’s Ministry of Science & Technology, CSP was clearly put into one of the key planning contents of China’s 12th five-year plan. Meanwhile, now China has hundreds of enterprises working on CSP technology, equipment, research, production, and coming into application.
In order to promote CSP industry development and communication in China, Asia and even the world, the first AsiaSolar CSP exhibition & forum is set to be held on March 13th-15th, 2013 in Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center, you are sincerely welcome to take part in AsiaSolar CSP exhibition and forum.
