What Is Concentrated Solar Power?

What exactly is concentrated solar-thermal power (CSP) and how does it work? Mirrors are used in CSP technologies to reflect and concentrate sunlight onto a receiver. In the receiver, the energy from concentrated sunlight heats a high-temperature fluid. This heat, also known as thermal energy, can be used to generate electricity by spinning a turbine … Continue reading What Is Concentrated Solar Power?
