Concentrated solar power (CSP) is also called as concentrated solar thermal. Solar energy can be used to create electricity in two separate ways. First is solar concentrators and the second is photovoltaic systems. Concentrated solar power is a technology that generates electricity by concentrating solar energy in the main point. It is used to focus sunlight. The concentrated solar power plant generates electric power uses mirrors to concentrate the large area of sunlight onto a small area and also focus the sun’s energy. CSP can also provide combined power and heat, particularly in desalinization plants. Concentrated solar power technologies subsist in five general types, such as parabolic trough, enclosed trough, concentrating linear Fresnel reflector, dish Stirling, and solar power tower.

How artificial intelligence can build a sustainable future

Article | March 6, 2020

In 1956, the concept of Artificial Intelligence (AI) was formally proposed, marking the birth of artificial intelligence. The main goal towards the development of AI is to give robots the ability to perceive, learn, think, make decisions and act. After more than 60 years of development, artificial intelligence has made breakthrough progress in our society. It has been widely used in various fields of economy and society and has formed a trend to lead a new round of industrial transformation, pushing human society into the intelligent era. And, the strategic significance of artificial intelligence has been embraced by all business sectors

Renewable Energy Could Power the World by 2050

Article | February 21, 2020

Virtually all the world’s demand for electricity to run transport and to heat and cool homes and offices, as well as to provide the power demanded by industry, could be met by renewable energy by mid-century. This is the consensus of 47 peer-reviewed research papers from 13 independent groups with a total of 91 authors that have been brought together by Stanford University in California. Some of the papers take a broad sweep across the world, adding together the potential for each technology to see if individual countries or whole regions could survive on renewables.

How heat can be used to store renewable energy

Article | February 25, 2020

The effect that fossil fuels are having on the climate emergency is driving an international push to use low-carbon sources of energy. At the moment, the best options for producing low-carbon energy on a large scale are wind and solar power. But despite improvements over the last few years to both their performance and cost, a significant problem remains: the wind doesn’t always blow, and the sun doesn’t always shine. A power grid that relies on these fluctuating sources struggles to constantly match supply and demand, and so renewable energy sometimes goes to waste because it’s not produced when needed.

Which Solar Panels are the Most Efficient?

Article | February 14, 2020

SunPower's solar panels are widely acknowledged to be the industry's most efficient1 with an ability to convert the most sunlight into usable energy. But the benefit for homeowners goes beyond SunPower’s solar panel technology. While other solar companies are hooked up to hybrid systems that use parts from several different companies, SunPower's panels are linked to integrated systems designed solely by their own manufacturers to absorb more light for more power.
