IBM’s solar Sunflower enhances the sun by 2000 times to heat and purify water … –

Solar power is fine for producing electricity in sunny countries. But current technology takes up room and is expensive for little output. The solar Sunflower is a 10 metre high dish which tracks the sun, like a flower, and uses reflective panels to enhance its power by 2,000 times. It can then produce up to 12kW of electricity, it can heat water and it can purify sea or dirty water.
