Concentrating Solar Power in China and India: A Spatial Analysis of Technical Potential and the Cost of Deployment
This study provides an in-depth assessment of Concentrating solar power (CSP) potential in China and India using high-resolution spatial data for site selection and modeling of plant performance, assessment of alternative land-use scenarios, estimation of generating costs, and simulation of transmission requirements. The results are used to estimate the costs and Green House Gas (GHG) abatement of an illustrative CSP expansion program that provides 20 per cent of Chinese and Indian electricity by midcentury. [Working Paper No. 219].
