Concentrating Solar Power Projects: Solar Paces

Concentrating Solar Power Projects by Status

In this section, you can select concentrating solar power (CSP) projects under one of five categories: operational, under construction, under development, request for offer or currently non-operational. You can then select a specific project and review a profile covering project basics, participating organizations, and power plant configuration data for the solar field, power block, and thermal energy storage.

  • Operational—projects with working power plants that are producing electricity
  • Under Construction—projects where ground has been broken and construction is still in progress
  • Under Development—projects having a signed agreement, but actual construction is still pending.
  • Request for Offer—projects that are response to a call for proposals or that are announced but have no signed agreement.
  • Currently Non-Operational—projects that were operational but are now defunct or that were demonstrations for just a limited period.

You can use other sorting options to access information on CSP projects.
