    Sad that Solar Thermal Application does not find a place. CSP is going to be the Game Changer with 72% Efficiency (Compared to 12 to 15% in PV). Solar Concentrators can provide heat or steam from 80-250 deg C that is typically required in most process industries. Industries have a significant requirement for low to medium temperature heat (up to 250 °C) in the form of steam, hot water, hot air and hot oil which can be easily met by CSP. Approximately 30% of the heat energy used in industry is below 100°C and 57% is below 400°C. Demand is primarily covered by Diesel, FO, Gas, Coal (for larger heat loads), biomass and electricity. CSP @ 72% PLF guarantee an ROI of < 4 years depending on the current fuel used. Acclaim Technology Services India Private Limited have been offering CSP solutions with retrofit options so that down town time due to CSP is Zero.
