Even with low natural gas and oil prices in many markets around the world, operations seeking to reduce operational expenses or conserve fuel may find that industrial-scale concentrated solar power (CSP) technologies can generate low-cost steam. In this report, we explore the current CSP technologies that companies could utilize in steam generation applications byconsidering geography and calculating a levelized cost of steam (LCOS). We find that parabolic tough technologies lead the pack now and in the future, ultimately reaching $5/ MMBtu in 2020, competitive with conventional fossil fuel boilers.
