(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The uae now ranks only behind spain and the united states in total csp generation; india and china round out the world?s top five.

masdar’s shams i concentrated solar power (csp) plant in abu dhabi catapulted the uae to its new ranking as third amongst the world’s nations in both 2013 csp technology investment and total csp capacity.

the uae now ranks only behind spain and the united states in total csp generation; india and china round out the world’s top five. the rankings were recently unveiled in a report by ren21 an international multi-policy stakeholder network that promotes a rapid global transition to renewable energy.

according to ren21 the 100mw csp plant in abu dhabi’s western region is one reason why csp’s growth in emerging markets almost tripled during 2013. although spain and the us are still by far the market leaders in csp investment in this technology is accelerating most rapidly in regions that receive high amounts of daily sunshine or in high direct normal irradiation (dni). worldwide since 2004 global csp capacity has increased 10-fold and last year surged 36 per cent to a total of 3.4gw of energy generated.

while this industry continues to grow it is also marked by the use of a more standardised design. csp plants in the past decade have incorporated several designs and technologies over the past years but in 2013 all newly constructed csp plants used the parabolic trough design which is in use by shams 1. overall trends in the industry are favoring larger plants to take advantage of economies of scale as in the case of the shams 1 plant one of the largest csp plants worldwide.

“we’re pleased to see how high the uae ranks worldwide in renewable energy generation given the country’s commitment to sourcing more sources of secure and safe energy” said yousif al ali general manager of shams 1 power company. “and the numbers bear fruit: since its launch shams 1 has been generating enough power to electrify 20000 homes in the uae and displaces 175000 tonnes of carbon annually.”
