Dear SEIA Members and Subscribers,

As the vote to appoint Ernest Moniz as the next US energy secretary moves to the full Senate, there is still uncertainty surrounding the future policy and financing support for Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) in the United States.

Therefore, as a member of SEIA we wanted to share with you the very latest details for CSP Today USA 2013 (27-28 June, Las Vegas), that will bring together leading policy makers, utilities and developers to promote the benefits of dispatchable CSP and prove its competiveness in the US energy mix.

See the brochure for CSP Today USA here

At the event leading experts will debate the financing, permitting and environmental hurdles facing CSP, including:

  • Evolving with policy: Examine the programs and initiatives that will continue to facilitate the development of CSP plants, with insight from the Arizona Corporation Commission and the CSP Alliance
  • The value of CSP storage: Get critical input from SMUD, ERCOT, California-ISO and FERC on how CSP can add flexibility to their grid and overcome the challenges of PV and wind intermittency
  • CSP project milestones: Hear experts from SolarReserve, Abengoa and BrightSource Energy discuss the impact that 1.3GW of CSP plants coming online in the US will have on future financing, policy and support from utilities
