India: The Fight to Become a Science Superpower
(Nature, May 13, 2015)
SERIIUS is mentioned in the "Power Hungry" section: "There are other big international collaborations. The Solar Energy Research Institute for India and the United States was established in 2012 to target emerging research areas. In one project, researchers are trying to generate solar thermal power by using sunlight to heat up a highly compressed fluid form of carbon dioxide so that it turns electricity-generating turbines. This could be used in much smaller plants than conventional steam-driven turbines."

CSTEP CSP Study for India Now Ready
(May 2013)
The Center for Study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP) has recently completed a report entitled "Engineering Economic Policy Assessment of Concentrated Solar Thermal Power Technologies for India." The study details the economics of parabolic trough systems for scales of 1 to 50 megawatts and includes the impact of energy storage and hybridization. CSTEP also developed a graphic user interface (GUI) model based on the results of the study.
