Google – Drops Investment in CSP

This is a setback.  The reason is that CSP (Concentrating Solar Power) often is more amenable to energy storage which makes solar dispatchable.  Dispatchable means that it is available even when the sun isn’t shining.  This is important as we seek penetrations of over 20% renewables.
