Sunflower-Inspired Pattern Increases Concentrated Solar Efficiency

There are only a handful of concentrated solar power (CSP) plants in the world. The technology could potentially generate enough renewable energy to power the entire U.S., provided that land and sunlight are in ample supply. Researchers have now come up with a design that reduces the amount of land required to build a CSP plant, while increasing the amount of sunlight its mirrors collect.
