Concentrating Solar Thermal Power (CSTP) is a free and naturally available energy that has the potential to become the main source of electricity in the upcoming years. No other fuel is required to run the plant only sun energy is sufficient; hence no emission of greenhouse gases. With the total annual 2000kWh/m2 Direct Normal Irradiance (DNI) is present; the area required for production of 100MWe of electricity is around 2km2. India receives an average annual DNI of about 1950kWh/m2 which is higher as compared to other countries and is suitable to run the CSP plant. In 2015 the investment cost of CSP plant is about $3705/kWe. As the CSTP does not required any fossil fuel it can overcome the power crisis of India. In this paper the advantages of CSTP has been focused.
