TopicThe Importance of Concentrating Solar Power in Tackling Climate Change

 Most power plants use fossil fuels to boil water.  The steam from the boiling water spins a large turbine, which drives a generator to produce electricity.  But a new generation of concentrating solar power (CSP) plants uses the sun as a heat source.  CSP already plays an increasingly important role in the fight against climate change, and that role will grow with improved technologies, policies, and economics.  Join CRES and one of the world’s leading CSP experts to find out how this will happen.

Dr. Chuck Kutscher is a principal engineer and manager of the Thermal Systems Group at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado, where he currently leads the research on parabolic trough solar collector systems.  He is a past chair of the American Solar Energy Society (ASES), and was general chair of the SOLAR 2006 national solar energy conference, which led to the ASES report Tackling Climate Change in the U.S. (available at http://www.ases.org/climatechange).  He is an adjunct professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he developed and teaches a course entitled “Climate Change Solutions,” and he writes a regular column about climate change for SOLAR TODAY MAGAZINE.  He has given many presentations around the country on climate change solutions and concentrating solar power.
