India innovation to generate clean energy from concentrated solar power

Scientists at Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in the city have developed a super critical carbon dioxide Brayton test loop facility that would help generate clean energy from future power plants including solar thermal. This is India's first test-bed for next generation, efficient, compact, water-less super critical carbon dioxide Brayton [...]

India, Solar Technology, and the Monkey Problem

Concentrated solar power, in which reflective troughs heat up water that is then fed to heat exchangers and turbines to produce electricity, could play a key role in India’s energy future.
