Unformatted text preview: e 1980s. Solar thermal power plants will, within the next decade, provide a significant contribution to an efficient, economical and environmentally benign energy supply both in large-scale gridconnected dispatchable markets and remote or modular distributed markets. Parabolic and Fresnel troughs, central receivers and parabolic dishes will be installed for solar/fossil hybrid and solardishes only power plant operation. In parallel, decentralised only process heat for industrial applications will be provided by low-cost concentrated collectors. by Following a subsidised introduction phase in green markets, electricity costs will decrease from 14 to 18 Euro cents per kilowatt hour presently in Southern Europe towards 5 to 6 Euro cents per kilowatt hour in the near future at good sites in the countries of the Earth’s sunbelt. After that, there will be no further additional cost in the emission reduction by CSP. This, and the vast potential for bulk electricity generation, moves the goal of longterm stabilisation of the global climate into a realistic range. Moreover, the problem of sustainable water resources and development in arid regions is addressed in an excellent way, making use of highly efficient, solar powered co-generation systems. However, during the introduction phase, strong political and financial support from the responsible authorities is still required, and many barriers must be overcome [7]. barriers References References [1]http://aloisiuskolleg.www.de/schule/fach bereiche/comenius/charles/solar.html bereiche/comenius/charles/solar.html [2]http://www.tpub.com/utilities/index.html [2]http://www.tpub.com/utilities/index.html [3]http://www.canren.gc.ca/tech.appl/index .asp [4]http://www.geocities.com/dieret/re/Solar [4]http://www.geocities.com/dieret/re/Solar /solar.html /solar.html [5]http://www.eren.doe.gov/menus/energy [5]http://www.eren.doe.gov/menus/energy ex.html ex.html [6]http://www.powerfromthesun.net/chapte [6]http://www.powerfromthesun.net/chapte r1/Chapter1.html [7]http://www.eere.energy.gov/ [7]http://www.eere.energy.gov/ [8]http://rredc.nrel.gov/solar/pubs/redbook/ [8]http://rredc.nrel.gov/solar/pubs/redbook/ interp.html [9]http://www.sunwindsolar.com/a solar/ optics html optics [10]http://www.eere.energy/gov/solar/solar.
