MIT research: A new sunflower-inspired pattern increases concentrated solar efficiency
Date:1/11/2012

ative to its neighbor. The numerically optimized layout takes up 20 percent less space than the PS10 layout. What's more, the spiral pattern reduced shading and blocking and increased total efficiency compared with PS10's radially staggered configuration.

Mitsos says arranging a CSP plant in such a spiral pattern could reduce the amount of land and the number of heliostats required to generate an equivalent amount of energy, which could result in significant cost savings. "Concentrated solar thermal energy needs huge areas," Mitsos says. "If we're talking about going to 100 percent or even 10 percent renewables, we will need huge areas, so we better use them efficiently."
