The U.S. Energy Department says it will provide as much as $52.5 million to research and develop solar power systems that can produce electricity day and night. The systems are concentrating solar power technologies that concentrate and capture the sun's energy as heat, which then drives an engine or turbine to produce electrical power. Officials said such plants can include low-cost energy storage, which allows them to provide electricity even when the sun is not shining. Current solar...
