BUSSE, Kai Timon  and  DINTER, Frank. Overview of predictive CSP spread prospects and its opportunities. J. energy South. Afr. [online]. 2016, vol.27, n.2, pp.50-59. ISSN 2413-3051.

An investigation was carried out to illustrate the prospects and challenges associated with implementation of concentrating solar power (CSP) with storage technology in South Africa. Various factors were examined that have an effect on the cost of CSP plants and offer an overall review of the opportunities CSP has for the country. This paper appeals the general idea that CSP is not cost effective enough and attempts to illustrate the feasibility of this technology in South Africa.

Keywords : concentrating solar power; South Africa; spread scenarios; storage technology.
