When most of us think of sunlight being used to generate power, we likely picture photovoltaic cells. Concentrated solar power plants however, use lenses or mirrors to heat fluid – such as synthetic oil – which in turn is used to generate high-pressure steam to drive a conventional turbine. A new experimental solar steam generation power plant that opened last week in southern Spain is aiming to improve on the efficiency of existing systems by using water as the direct working fluid and incorporating novel methods for storing the energy, so it can be dispensed even on cloudy days or at night.

    I’ve never understood the Nuclear Power Cult. Despite the extreme expense, the dangers, the long term storage and disposal issues, and the far-reaching damages caused by major accidents, cultists still worship nuclear power as if it is going to save us all.

    So many responders here are obviously cult members.

    Wind power is not feasible.

    Solar has similar problems, but perhaps it will get there.

    All that the John Muir Trust cares about is the rich can continue fox hunting in UK forests.
    Stuart Young Consulting which prepared the report, is an activist organization that worries only about the scenery being “spoiled” by wind turbines.

    I guess they see nuclear cooling towers as beautiful or something.

    As always, when you get information…consider its source.
