CSP sees a bright future for linear fresnel technology CSP sees a bright future for linear fresnel technology

Concentrated solar power (CSP) is not new on the scene. So the question is, do latecomers still have a bright future and can they deliver solar power on a global scale that we can all afford? Graham Ford of Heliodynamics looks at linear fresnel CSP.

Can dye-sensitised solar cells deliver low-cost PV? Can dye-sensitised solar cells deliver low-cost PV?

Dye-sensitised cells (DSCS) have emerged alongside organic solar photovoltaics (PV) as a technology that might just transform solar energy prospects by delivering cheap "commodity" PV. George Marsh investigates.
