India : Haryana's First Concentrated Solar Thermal Power Facility to come in Gurgaon

The Solar Energy Centre (SEC) in partnership with the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay has undertaken an experimental project to build a concentrated solar energy production plant of 1MW in Gurgaon, Haryana.

The Gurgaon-based Haryana s first concentrated solar thermal power plant, which is almost completed, will run on the steam-and-turbine principle in place of using expensive solar photovoltaic cells. The facility will begin test operations by the first week of next month.

Solar energy is known as the most excellent option over traditional energy. However, the technology will need much time prior to substitute the accessible sources of power production fruitfully. It is facing two obstructions en route for its advancement and these are its elevated expenses, and low effectiveness, while the brains behind 1MW concentrating solar thermal facility in Gurgaon are trying to remove these two challenges via their new project.
