Concentrating Solar Power - Technology, Cost, and Markets
A guide to the impact CSP technologies will have on the solar and
broader renewable energy markets through 2020

This exhaustive report on the CSP sector by The Prometheus Institute
and Greentech Media is already being recognized as a must have for
stakeholders in the CSP industry, and other areas of solar and
renewable energy who will be affected by the growth of CSP.

Cleantech Group members are invited to preview the Executive Summary
before it's release by contacting me directly at
Boyce@greentechmedia.com. Those interested in ordering the full report
can also receive a 10% discount if ordered between now and April
15th.
