Super Mirror Power Plant in Gansu, NW China

2021.03.01     From: Xinhua

Dunhuang, March 1 (Xinhua) -- The molten-salt concentrated solar power plant is located in Dunhuang, northwest China's Gansu Province.


The 100MW power plant, also called the "super mirror power plant", works by using 12,000 mirrors that concentrate the sunlight onto a receiver at the top of a solar tower, which then heats the molten salt. It is designed to generate 390 million kWh of power annually, which can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 350,000 metric tons per year.


Known as concentrated solar power, solar thermal energy is believed to be the next generation of solar energy, and an ideal green power source.
