Solar Energy Market
In countries with high solar resources and land availability, solar Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) technology has the potential to become an integral part of the generation mix.
According to a study by the World Energy Council, global energy demands is set to increase by 70 to 100 percent by 2050. With a return of fossil fuel volatility and rising concerns about climate change, CSP is positioning itself to be a competitive, environmentally-friendly and safe power generation technology.
The best location for solar thermal power plants is the Earth´s Sun Belt, where the sun shines most frequently and it´s radiation is most intense. The Sun Belt is located roughly between the 40th parallels north and south i.e. between southern Spain and South Africa. The Sun Belt in particular features, deserts such as those in North Africa, which offer almost unlimited surface potential.
