How Solar PV is Winning Over CSP

Mark, thank you for your note, I've corrected the label (both here and on the original article).

It is a privilege to meet the project manager from the SMUDPV plant, and to know more about its history. Congratulations on that 30th birthday!

Best,
Romeu

How Solar PV is Winning Over CSP

Marvin, thank you for your note.

I will however not change the text. Dispatchable generation can mean different things to different people, so I have used what I believe is the most widely adopted definition (taken from Wikipedia, a collaborative, peer-reviewed and generally up-to-date source):

"Dispatchable generation refers to sources of electricity that can be dispatched at the request of power grid operators; that is, generating plants that can be turned on or off, or can adjust their power output on demand. (...) In general the only types of renewable energy which are dispatchable are biofuel, biomass, hydropower with a reservoir, and concentrated solar power with thermal storage."
