GLRPPR Sector Resource: Energy 101: Concentrating Solar Power

Title:
Energy 101: Concentrating Solar Power

Abstract:
From towers to dishes to linear mirrors to troughs, concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies reflect and collect solar heat to generate electricity. A single CSP plant can generate enough power for about 90,000 homes. This video explains what CSP is, how it works, and how systems like parabolic troughs produce renewable power.
