This paper presents the use of concentrating solar power technique. It can be used as an important method of creating carbon-free electricity. CSP is currently the most cost-effective way of capturing solar energy, but this might change in the future with further developments in photovoltaics (PV). The paper outlined several variations on the scheme, including systems that use heat to drive a Stirling engine and generator; and hybrid schemes that use mirrors in conjunction with PV.
