Many people associate solar electricity generation directly with photovoltaics and
not with solar thermal power. Yet large, commercial, concentrating solar ...
Solar thermal power uses solar energy instead of combustion. Solar thermal
power plants use the sun's rays to heat a fluid to high temperatures. The fluid is
The project is currently the largest solar thermal power plant in the world. Ivanpah
was constructed by Bechtel and is operated by NRG Energy, one of the ...
This solar thermal power plant
will have the capacity of generating up to eight hours after dark and during cloudy days. The heated fluid operates as in conventional power
stations directly (if steam or air is used as medium) or indirectly through a heat exchanging ste... More »
Solar thermal electricity (STE) generated by concentrating solar power (CSP)
plants is one of those technologies. It has witnessed robust growth in the last four
Concentrating solar plants (CSP) generate solar thermal electricity (STE) while
producing no greenhouse gas emissions, so it could be a key technology for ...
