New Cost-effective Solar Energy

Research scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE in Freiburg have developed the technology to design Fresnel reflectors which represent a low-cost alternative for huge parabolic mirrors used in the present scenario. Flat mirrors arrayed in long rows are so aligned that, with the aid of a small secondary mirror, they focus the sunlight on a linear tube running along the row of mirrors. Water is vaporized directly in this tube and heated up to 450 degrees Celsius at high pressure. Linear Fresnel reflectors are cheaper than parabolic mirrors, take up less space and are less sensitive to the wind.
