Solar Thermal Power

Project Summary

The GEF will finance the incremental costs of construction and operation, by the private sector, of a grid-connected, 140MW solar-thermal fossil-fuel hybrid power plant in Rajasthan, incorporating a parabolic trough solar thermal field of about 35-40MW. The plant would demonstrate the operational viability of solar trough technology and its use by an independent power producer with commercial sales and delivery arrangements with the grid. The project is designed to stimulate the expansion of solar-thermal technology worldwide over the long term.
