list of places in india where solar thermal concentrators are in operation

Concentrated Solar Power CSP plants are devices that use mirrors or lenses to concentrate sunlight into a small area, where it can be used to heat water or generate steam. This steam can be used to drive turbines and generate electricity, or it can be used for other applications such as heating buildings or industrial processes.

India has immense potential for solar thermal energy. The country receives an average of 5 kWh/m2 of solar radiation daily, which is higher than many other parts of the world. Furthermore, India has a large population and a growing economy, which means that there is a growing demand for energy.


There are currently several CSP plants in operation in India with more under construction. These plants use the sun's heat to generate electricity, which can be used to power homes, businesses, and other facilities. CSP plants are also being used to produce steam for industrial processes and to heat water for domestic use.

CSP development in India is helping the country reduce its reliance on fossil fuels and meet its renewable energy targets. The CSP plants are also creating jobs and boosting the economy.


As CSP technology continues to develop, it is expected to play an increasingly important role in India's energy mix. CSP has the potential to help India meet its energy needs while reducing its environmental impact.
