R&D Activities

The first step in a concentrating solar power system is to “collect” and focus the sunlight using a large array of mirrors, or collectors. Different configurations of mirrors can be used depending on the type of CSP technology being employed. CSP system technologies include dish, parabolic trough, linear Fresnel, and central receiver (power tower) systems. [...]
