GGEL has used the Parabolic Trough Collectors which is a line focus Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) Technology. This technology is far better than any other CSP technology available till date. The parabolic trough collector has a very high concentration ratio of 82:1 (basically creating the energy of 82 suns). This technology utilizes the direct Normal Irradiance which is measured in terms of Watts per Square meter.
The solar thermal industry and especially the concentrating solar power industry are being developed worldwide at a rapid pace with several technological advancements happening with every new projects and the ongoing research to make the technology even more efficient.
