Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
bruno-ken's link has some good data in it. I've seen EROEI numbers from 2 to 5 (bruno-ken's article is based in years for energy payback). It's not that great regardless, although I expect it to continue to improve. For power plants of any size, solar heat is probably a better method.
