BrightSource estimates worldwide market for solar thermal electricity generation to exceed $200 billion by 2020 as a result of the continued focus on clean energy worldwide. Yet reliability and cost are and will remain top priorities for utilities. Our technology responds dynamically to both.  

Renewable sources of energy – wind and solar photovoltaic (PV) – are unpredictable and not always aligned with peak energy demand. Such intermittent resources can impose increased operational costs on the grid in order to maintain their reliability. Due to their variable nature, back-up generation is required to maintain this reliability.

Combining energy storage with concentrating solar thermal power transforms solar energy into a flexible, dispatchable resource. Deployed at utility scale, it enables power generators to deliver clean energy, reliably and cost-competitively.
