Energy - sustainable finance - green finance.

Solar CSP is an abbreviation for Concentrating Solar Power energy generation.


Solar CSP systems use reflectors to focus and concentrate the sun's light energy, typically to raise the temperature of a heat-absorbing heat transfer fluid.

The heat energy in the heat transfer fluid is then used in turn to generate electricity, for example through steam turbines.

Contrasted with Solar PV systems, which generate electricity directly.
