solar thermal

solar thermal

Uses sunlight to create heat, but needs water to operate. Once solar thermal devices receive sunlight, they concentrate the light and generate heat. The generated heat warms the water, which can either be circulated and used directly, or can be used to drive a turbine that generates electricity. There are three types of solar thermal systems: parabolic troughs, parabolic dishes, and power towers. See also: Energy
