This assessment compares 9 CSP technologies for solid fuels and 11 for natural gas. ? Results derive from data from literature, industry contacts, own calculations and workshop. ? Multi-criteria decision making (Analytical Hierarchy Process) to combine quantitative and qualitative data. ? For lower temperature steam integration, Fresnel and parabolic trough (thermal oil) score best. ? High temperature steam integration favours solar towers (direct steam generation & molten salt).
