A solar power plant with a molten salt tower covers a 7.8 square meter field. Km with a tower to absorb heat, which rises 260 meters above the ground.
With 12,000 large reflective mirrors, the power plant is able to generate energy during the day, providing 390 million kWh of electricity per year.
The technology of producing solar energy provides a steady and continuous production of electricity through the use of green energy and is considered a source of new energy with great potential.
Zeng Shaojun, an expert at the National Energy Administration's Regulatory Committee, said that this technology could be a real substitute for traditional thermal energy.
“Success in the development of technologies and the commercialization of solar energy production is more than a new type of power source, it is a stable power source with peak regulation and voltage regulation in new existing energy sources, and replacement of thermal energy,” said Zeng.
Sources said that operating a solar power plant with a molten salt tower would reduce annual carbon dioxide emissions by 350,000 tons. Video: Reuters.
