Concentrated Solar Power Or Battery Storage, Which One Is Cleaner?

Christos Markides, professor of clean energy technologies at Imperial College London, said that “Typically, Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) will have efficiencies which are slightly higher than photovoltaics (PVs)”. CSP stores energy as heat rather than in batteries. “Thermal energy storage is something like 10-times cheaper than electrical energy storage,” he explained. “That gives that particular technology an advantage.”
In addition, CSP can continue to create electricity even without the sun and well into the night.
