issue 120 | march 2020
Concentrated solar power (CSP) has many advantages over more established PV technologies, but the scale and complexity has driven a growing gap in costs between CSP and other renewable technologies. Is there still a place for CSP in the solar energy mix?
Also, we look at Aberdeen's ambitions to transition into a clean energy leader, examine the rise and fall of attitudes to onshore wind, and report back from COP25.
Finally, we profile Japan's renewable sector, hear from EcoHZ about electric vehicles' success in Norway, find out about the world's first digital twin of a hydroelectric power station, and speak to Statera about expanding the role of back-up energy in the UK.
