  • A dirt sensor for solar plants

    The mirrors that incorporate the heliostats, parabolic concentrators or solar device are exposed to the toughest of atmospheric conditions and, in some cases, endure extreme conditions owing to the places where they are located, chosen to make the most of the hours of sunlight. The inclemency of the weather, like rain, wind or dust cause impurities and dirt to accumulate on the mirrors and the ...

  • No show stoppers for concentrating solar power

    A recently published study confirms that solar thermal power is largely unrestricted by materials availability. There are, however, some issues that the industry needs to look into soon, like replacing silver in mirrors. In the wake of Chinese export restrictions on rare earth metals, the dependence of some renewable technologies on scarce materials has gained attention. Several players in the ...
