Thermal Energy News

In this news section we publish the information on solar thermal power plants, R&D and innovative technologies. Unlike photovoltaic stations converting solar energy into electrical power directly, solar thermal installations utilize sunlight as a heat source. They concentrate solar energy to generate heat, which can be converted into electricity. Concentrated solar power.
