The Hawaiian company's "micro concentrating solar power" troughs shrink the basic design of equipment used in large-scale solar power plants.
The Sahara Forest Project is a solution that combines seemingly disparate technologies – Concentrated solar power and Seawater Greenhouses – and turns them into a mean, green super-massive biomachine. The elegant system could potentially produce enough energy for all of Africa and Europe while turning one of the world’s most inhospitable regions into a flourishing oasis.
11.6.13 - Steam engine tech could bring cost of solar energy storage down to $100/kWh - Terrajoule has "one demonstration system in place in California, and is taking aim at some promising cost figures by 2015. The Terrajoule system couples concentrated solar with steam engines and an integrated storage system using an insulated pressure vessel to deliver cost-effective solar energy 24 hours a day."
