Item description for Concentrated Solar Thermal Energy by Charles Christopher Newton...
Even in today's world market, with all of the vast technological advancements and improvements, there are still people who live in darkness at night. These areas lack the infrastructure and resources for such an amenity. Also, throughout the world, the demand for useable energy is increasing rapidly, with electricity being the energy of choice. One way to meet this increasing demand for electricity is to steer away from conventional methods and move towards novel, alternative, renewable, energy resources, such as solar energy. With a move towards solar energy, solar thermal technology has become competitive in some very limited markets. Few solar thermal systems to date have been developed and produced for the use of power generation, however, due to complex designs and costs of production and maintenance, these solar thermal systems have fallen behind in the world of alternative energy systems. The concentrated solar thermal system discussed in this work is designed with simplicity in mind, and is designed with the idea of being used in off-grid and less tech-savvy areas; most importantly, as a proof of concept.
