Concentrated solar power might just revolutionize the energy sector as we know it.

Concentrated solar power is produced using a large amount of mirrors which are angled to reflect the sunlight onto a large solar receiver. Aside from being clean energy, one of the most promising advantages of CSP is that it can generate transportable energy for use far beyond where it was harvested.

The idea of concentrated solar power isn’t new — the first commercial plant was developed in the 1960s. But a company called Heliogen has found a way to make the process of reflecting and storing sunlight much more accurate and efficient. And soon, it might be more cost-effective than fossil fuels.

If adopted globally, this could lead to a hard reset in the manufacturing industry, not to mention prevent wars over oil and mitigate climate change.
