Concentrated-Solar Technology systems

Concentrated solar power (CSP) is used to produce electricity (sometimes called solar thermoelectricity, usually generated through steam). Concentrated-solar technology systems use mirrors or lenses with tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight onto a small area. Concentrated light is then used as heat or as a heat source for a conventional power plant (solar thermoelectricity).

At most places, the heat requirement in the form of steam/ pressurized hot water/air or oil is between 90 °C to 350 °C. Industry is one of the major consumers of such heat for various processes as mentioned in the table (Next Page)
