Solar Energy : Thermal

Solar thermal energy (STE) is a technology for harnessing solar energy for thermal energy (heat).

• Low temperature collectors are flat plates generally used to heat swimming pools.

• Medium-temperature collectors are also usually flat plates but are used for heating water for residential and commercial use.

• High temperature collectors concentrate sunlight using mirrors or lenses and are generally used for electric power production. This is different from solar photovoltaics, which convert solar energy directly into electricity. exposure)

• The principal behind high temperature collectors is to concentrate the heat in order to produce, which powers turbines and generates electricity.

• This process is quite efficient in countries which have large surface areas and appropriate weather conditions (sun exposure)
