Solar energy exploitation to produce electricity in large scale by using larger concave mirrors.

Sep 06, 2019

To tap the solar energy in large scale, larger concave mirrors of diameters of tens of meters, can be built with cheap material like cement and gravel. The reflecting surface can be painted/pasted with cheap shiny metallic paint/metal foil. These can be constructed and oriented permanently such that, these can converge the solar light on a big chamber fixed above the ground at required height.This chamber filled with air gets enormously heated due to the concave mirrors converging the solar light on it. With the steam engine like arrangements, this chamber will work in creating to and fro motion. This to and fro motion can be used to generate electricity in large scale.
