Précis:Last week CSP Today spoke to Craig Turchi about the DOE and SunShot initiative in the USA. This week Susan Kraemer delves deeper into the potential of s-C02 in reducing CSP costs.
This year, the DOE’s SunShot Initiative is investing $56 million into technologies that promise to truly revolutionize CSP. The goal is to reduce the wholesale rate for CSP to 6 cents a kilowatt-hour by 2020 (the same target it is working on for PV) in order for solar technologies to competitively supply 15 to 18% of America's electricity generation by 2030.
