Uses mirrors to reflect and concentrate sunlight onto receivers that convert solar energy to heat
The facilities that generate Solar power to generate electricity at large centralized facilities, which in turn transmit the power via electric grids to homes and businesses are called as “Concentrated solar power (CSP) facilities”.
A CSP plant usually uses mirrors which concentrate the solar energy which drive the steam engines or turbines to create electricity.
In the CSP plant, the thermal energy that is concentrated can be stored and it can used to produce electricity whenever it is needed.
Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) technologies use mirrors to concentrate (focus) the sun's light energy and convert it into heat to create steam to drive a turbine that generates electrical power.
CSP technology utilizes focused sunlight. CSP plants generate electric power by using mirrors to concentrate (focus) the sun's energy and convert it into high-temperature heat. That heat is then channeled through a conventional generator. The plants consist of two parts: one that collects solar energy and converts it to heat, and another that converts the heat energy to electricity. A brief video showing how concentrating solar power works (using a parabolic trough system as an example) is available from the Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Web site.
Within the United States, CSP plants have been operating reliably for more than 15 years. All CSP technological approaches require large areas for solar radiation collection when used to produce electricity at commercial scale.
CSP technology utilizes three alternative technological approaches: trough systems, power tower systems, and dish/engine systems.
