Concentrated Solar Power

Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) is a highly innovative technology that can trace its roots back to the legend of Archimedes’ burning mirrors: a solar system covered with mirrors that concentrate the sun’s energy towards a tube, containing a liquid composed of a mix of dissolved salts. The energy produced is used for heating or for producing electricity. Thanks to solar thermodynamic concentration it is possible to accumulate energy even when the sun is not shining. CSP has been designed by Eni, in collaboration with the Politecnico di Milano and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). A pilot plant is due to be built in the near future in Gela.
