The goal of the report is to give an overview of the general trends, to highlight special applications and outstanding projects and to document the solar thermal capacity installed in the important markets worldwide. Furthermore, it is the goal to ascertain the contribution of solar thermal systems to the supply of energy and the CO2 emissions avoided as a result of operating these sys tems.
This report provides an operational analysis of 2030 that includes spatially disaggregated, hourly commitment and dispatch modeling. Our modeling includes constraints on transmission, unit-specific costs and operating constraints, and hourly, weekly and seasonal inter-temporal constraints that have not been previously analyzed.
This report helps policymakers, planners, private developers, and other actors in the ASEAN member states assess the cost of renewable-energybased, utility-scale, land-based wind and solar PV opportunities.
This report consists of three distinct tasks, which examines the role of CSP and other solar plus storage technologies in providing grid services spanning timescales from seconds to decades
