Concentrating Solar Power

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) and Photovoltaic Solar Power (PV), Watch, Read, Write

Write: 300-500 words, what are the key areas that have made concentrating solar power plants and PV Solar Power Plants possible in the last 10 years? Will CSP have
advantages over PV? Will PV develop faster than CSP? What one will be most advantageous for a renewable energy path? Please cite your facts.
