Direct steam generation in parabolic trough or linear Fresnel collectors represents one interesting technological option for concentrating solar electricity production. Today’s state of the art characterized by the first commercial plants in operation is a result of more than 20 years of intensive research on this topic. This article provides a review on the key results from research which includes physical effects like heat transfer and pressure drop in horizontal boiler tubes, plant layout considerations, and thermal storage options. An overview on test and demonstration facilities as well as on commercial plants is given leading to an outlook on the next generation of direct steam generation systems.
