Decarbonizing industrial customers' electricity demand is relatively straight-forward by investing in solar PV and wind assets. By powering heat pumps emission-free electricity can also help produce heat up to 120C at competitive costs. Decarbonizing heat demand above 120C is trickier. The only available, scalable technology for this is concentrated solar heat which in general is considered too expensive compared to fossil fuels. 

This article discusses ways to get to costs competitive to natural gas. Getting there will unlock a very large market opportunity for utilities while helping them reduce their carbon footprint significantly.
