In the Aljarafe region of Spain, there’s PS10 and PS20: concentrated solar power towers. They’re huge towers surrounded by heliostats: movable mirrors that …
Don't think I didn't catch that Star Wars reference!!!!!
in nevada we have on and it one the largest consumer of natural gas in the state
This is the problem with solar and wind power. Both make very expensive electricity. No matter what liberals might try and tell you the government have to subsidised these, and where does that money ultimately come from? Tax. And higher energy prices. That's why I'm the uk we have expensive energy. We really need to go nuclear. That is the future.
The title sounds like a prize from Techdif
I love your videos because they are so short and informative without waffling on for 8-10 minutes
Omg, I drove by here when I was in Spain but never knew anything about them.
Do be careful in selecting adjectives. At 1:29 you refer to "massive fields." The primary measure of a field of ground is not its mass, but its area. My point is that "massive" should refer to something's actual mass, and is not a mere synonym for "huge" or "large." Here endeth the lesson from an old copy editor.
So if the future's not quite so bright… does that mean it's not quite so orange too?
I remember that catchphrase. (Or slogan, slogan is probably the more accurate word!)
Looks like arma3
Black absorbs more energy.So,the tower must be black to increase efficiency
This is like the reverse of the towers in Lord Of The rings.
solar power is not the future.
how many birds died for these
helios one anybody?
I have altered the deal. Pray that I do not alter it any further
I have a solar powered laser for cooking birds mid-flight.
I can imagine if an alien civilization found this they would thing is was some religious structure.
"pray they don't alter it any further" was that a deliberate Star Wars reference?
i want to see a cooked bird
There are a few of these in Israel too. I have seen a small water array in kibbutz Samar in the desert.And here too, the country is moving towards PV, which I think is unfortunate.
Why are they white? Wouldn't they absorb heat better if painted black?
are you actually in the location or is it greenscreen?
I noticed the Darth Vader reference. Very clever!
this was never a condition of our arrangement, nor was giving han to this bounty hunter!
Nice Empire Strikes Back reference.
We have like 30 days of sunny days where I live… Satellite internet barely works for the same reason, cloudy all the time…
Reminds me of Helios One in Fallout New Vegas
Wait i have an idea. Most solar Panels are slightly reflective right. So how about replace all those mirrors with solar panels for slightly more output.
1:15 Star Wars reference
I'm going to be seeing some of these tomorrow
