A better way to generate solar energy

IMG_9602

CSIRO’s solar thermal heliostat mirrors are hitting the world stage to help China meet its renewable energy targets. The CSIRO has announced a new partnership with Chinese company, Thermal Focus, to use their unique heliostat (mirror) technology for concentrating solar thermal electricity generation. An advantage of the CSIRO system is the very low cost of storing thermal energy, giving their technology great potential for medium to large-scale solar power, even when the sun isn’t shining, meaning the power can be used through the day, and the night!
