Report Code: EPR 0091 Report Format: PDF + Excel

Solar Thermal Power Market Overview:

The solar thermal power market was valued at 22500 million in 2022, and is projected to reach 34000 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.50% from 2023 to 2030.

The solar thermal power market has witnessed substantial growth in recent years due to increasing emphasis on renewable energy sources. Solar thermal power systems harness sunlight to generate heat, which is then used to produce electricity through turbines or engines.

 This technology offers advantages such as consistent power generation and energy storage capabilities, contributing to grid stability. Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) and Solar Parabolic Troughs are prominent solar thermal technologies. These systems have applications in utility-scale power plants and industrial processes, providing emission-free energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. 

Despite progress, challenges like high initial costs and intermittency still exist. Governments' supportive policies, technological advancements, and decreasing costs are expected to drive market expansion, with potential in regions with abundant sunlight, such as desert areas. As the world transitions towards cleaner energy, the solar thermal power market is poised for further growth.
