Globally, solar resources are abundant. Solar resources in Australia, Mexico, the Middle East, and southern and northern Africa are especially promising.
Parts of Latin America, India, central Asia, and China also have great potential. Other areas, such as Europe, have solar resources that are only marginally suitable for Concentrating Solar Thermal (CST), particularly in Spain and Portugal.
