Concentrated Solar Power Simple Explanation

In this video, I give a simple explanation on how Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) works. This is the type of solar power that uses thousands of mirrors over hundreds of acres to reflect sunlight on a tower. This heats up molten salt to over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The heated molten salt then creates steam from… Continue reading Concentrated Solar Power Simple Explanation

The beautiful future of solar power | Marjan van Aubel

The sun delivers more energy to earth in one hour than all of humanity uses in an entire year. How can we make this power more accessible to everyone, everywhere? Solar designer Marjan van Aubel shows how she’s turning everyday objects like tabletops and stained glass windows into elegant solar cells — and shares her… Continue reading The beautiful future of solar power | Marjan van Aubel

How solar energy became the cheapest in history

The sun. One of the most powerful energy sources ever available to humans. The process of exploration this energy began more than two thousand years ago, requiring at first colossal knowledge and skills from a person. Thanks to this labor, today, solar energy has become the cheapest in history. But why, with all its cheapness,… Continue reading How solar energy became the cheapest in history

How the world's largest solar power plant works

More and more countries of the world are beginning to use alternative energy sources, including solar. Therefore, modest rooftop panels are being replaced by “solar farms” spread over vast areas. So, the fourth-largest solar power plant in the world, Benban Solar Park is located in Egypt, covers an area of 37 square kilometers, and generates… Continue reading How the world's largest solar power plant works

Breaking Down Solar Panels

Solar is one of the fast growing energy sources in the world and photovoltaic cells are the key to collecting and converting that power. But — how does it work? And how much has this technology evolved in the last century since its inception? Full playlist:
