** This is a fast video Rey Sepulveda overview presentation that gave the Renewable Energy Society Meeting Speaker Minnesota Monthly. This presentation will cover the latest evolution of solar thermal concentrators. In addition to a brief discussion on the history of this technology and how new developments led to a huge leap forward in production and efficiency of solar thermal systems on the market today.

** Beam-Down solar thermal concentrator (BDSTC) Plant Tower is a concentrator focal point of approximately 280 square feet of primary reflecting surface. The primary reflector is made up of 33 2-axis tracking heliostats. This kWth solar thermal concentrator 100 is a unique solar research. Unlike conventional tower systems, the receiver is located at the lowest point focal near the ground. For more information: Laboratory for Energy and Nano Sciences ( Video Rating: 5 / 5

  2. For the record, I had this idea long time ago for home use. Another way that has still not been explored is to use the natural shape of the earth´╗┐ opposite the direction of travel of sun … imagine a collector array about 2 miles long, along a curved side of a hill facing southward and the contours will match the contour of the travel of sun in the sky, this will be programmed to point to single point which will collect the heat and melt Salt to store that heat for continuous generation.
