Latest Concentrating solar power Stories
A team of researchers from MIT and Aachen University in Germany have engineered a new kind of concentrated solar power (CSP) plant that allows for a greater yield of energy on a smaller area of land. And the progressive-thinking scientists say they got their inspiration for the design from was Mother Nature herself. In the journal Solar Energy, the transatlantic team recently reported that by arranging the mirrors, or ℠heliostats´, of solar devices in spiral formations they can...
Converting sunlight into electricity is not economically attractive because of the high cost of solar cells, but a recent, purely optical approach to improving luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs) may ease the problem, according to researchers at Argonne National Laboratories and Penn State. Using concentrated sunlight reduces the cost of solar power by requiring fewer solar cells to generate a given amount of electricity. LSCs concentrate light by absorbing and re-emiting it at lower...
