On the Rise: Solar Thermal Power and the Fight Against Global Warming

Preventing catastrophic global warming will require the United States to shift away from highly polluting sources of power and toward clean, renewable energy. On the Rise finds that concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies—which use the sun’s heat to generate electricity—can make a large contribution toward reducing global warming pollution in the United States, and do so quickly and at a reasonable cost. CSP can also reduce other environmental impacts of electric power production, while sparking economic development and creating jobs.
