Concentrating Solar Power- Power Towers

Today, the "Energy Towers" as well as the AtaMoS-TeC project in the Atacama Desert, continue to contribute to the industrial development of clean energy.

Power Towers are a type of CSP (Concentrated Solar Power) system that uses large flat mirrors to reflect sunlight to a solar receiver located at the tip of a central tower. This receiver is heated in order to generate steam, which turns a conventional turbine, thus producing electricity.
