CSP Potential for Solar Thermal Energy By Member Nation

The various levels of CSP potential for deployment of solar thermal energy generation throughout the world is illustrated generally in this map. The Direct Normal Irradiance (DNI) needed for CSP, is a little different from the solar resource needed for PV; Global Horizontal Irradiance, or GHI. DNI relies on clear air, free of particulates, often found in high desert lands. For each individual member nation’s CSP potential, please select each country linked by name.
