5 concentrated solar power technologies impacting industry

Twenty years from now, utilities may depend on fields of mirrors in the desert to produce 24-hour solar power. Concentrating solar power (CSP) technology collects the sun’s energy as heat, which can then be stored and called upon to produce power when needed—even when the sun isn’t shining. The Crescent Dunes power plant in [...]
