Concentrated Solar Power


Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) is a technology that involves using a large-scale array of parabolic reflectors or mirrors to collect solar thermal energy. This heat energy is used to generate steam to produce electrical power with traditional turbines as are used in fossil fuel and nuclear plants today.

Currently, CSP technology exists in four common forms; Solar Power Tower, Parabolic Trough, Dish Stirling, and Concentrating Linear Fresnel Reflectors.á

Solar Power Tower and Parabolic Trough are the two main approaches used for large-scale CSP systems.

SHEC Energy has developed a trough technology using thin film material and air pressure enhanced structures to significantly reduce the complexity and cost of solar concentrators used in CSP plants. This could enable much higher capacity factors to support 24 hour power production economically.
