Concentrated Solar Thermal Energy Supercritical Steam

See on Scoop.itHeat energy recovery technology

Supercritical solar steam is water pressurised at enormous force and heated using solar radiation. Around 90 per cent of Australia’s electricity is generated using fossil fuel, but only a small number of power stations are based on the more advanced supercritical steam.

Instead of relying on burning fossil fuels to produce supercritical steam, this breakthrough demonstrates that the power plants of the future could instead be using the free, zero emission energy of the sun to achieve the same result”
