Learn more about concentrated solar thermal.

We are currently in the process of developing material for the website to help you understand Concentrated Solar Thermal (CST) Power and the important role of CST research for the future of Australia and the world.

In the meantime there are some great resources to learn more including:

SolarPaces – The international network of researchers and industry experts for the development and marketing of concentrated solar thermal power systems and solar chemistry technologies.

  • SolarPACES Concentrated Solar Power Projects database maintained by NREL.
  • AUSTELA (Australia) – AUSTELA assists energy sector policy-makers, investors, analysts, commentators and the Australian community, to better understand the benefits of large-scale solar thermal power generation.
  • Clean Energy Council (Australia) – The peak body representing Australia’s clean energy sector made up of more than 550 member companies operating in the fields of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
  • Sunshot (USA) – The SunShot Initiative drives research, manufacturing, and market solutions to make the abundant solar energy resources in the United States more affordable and accessible for Americans
  • ESTELA (Europe) – ESTELA is a European Industry Association created to support the emerging European solar thermal electricity industry for the generation of green power in Europe and abroad, mainly in the Mediterranean region
