Researchers from the University of Western Australia found that there are many rural communities in the Western Australia where finding enough electricity is harder. But by using CSP, Concentrated Solar Power system it will be easy to fulfil  the demand of electricity.

They have the required environmental conditions of flat land, sunshine and access of water to fuel the systems. Concentrated Solar Power systems has given a hope for rural communities to attract industrial development.

Concentrated solar power (CSP) are very much different from the normal solar power system. CSP systems  use lenses or mirrors to concentrate a large area of sunlight onto a small area. Electrical power is produced when the concentrated light is converted to heat which drives a steam turbine connected to an electrical power generator.

Small or medium size systems could generate enough electricity to power a small town or run a mine site.

“Currently the system is running at capacity and so the idea was if we understand the physical parameters and some of the planning parameters, understand where we can put these things, then we can maybe use that to attract other industries,” Associate Professor Bryan Boruff says.
