Chapter Five of the SunShot Vision Study evaluates the current cost, performance, and potential of several concentrating solar power technologies. A detailed discussion of the opportunities for potential cost reductions to existing and emerging CSP technologies is provided. Key challenges to achieving the level of CSP growth envisioned in the SunShot scenario are evaluated, including potential materials-supply constraints as well as manufacturing scale-up issues.
