About concentrated solar power (CSP)

Concentrated solar power systems generate solar power by using mirrors or lenses to focus a large area of sunlight onto a small area – unlike PV, which generates power through the photovoltaic effect. Electricity is generated when the concentrated light is converted to heat, which drives a steam turbine connected to an electrical power generator.
