A solar thermal power plant utilizes solar thermal energy as a primary energy source by using solar heat absorbers. Depending on the plant's specific design, solar thermal power plants are generally more efficient than photovoltaic systems and usually require lower specific capital investment. Solar thermal power plants are suitable for use only in very sunny regions.
One of the popular technology used for heat and power generation is Parabolic trough technology :
In this the sunlight is collected by parabolic-trough mirrors and concentrated in a collector tube that contains a heat transfer fluid (synthetic oil) which is heated at a temperature of around 400°C by the solar energy. This oil is hot enough to generate steam via a heat exchanger; the steam is then used to drive the power plant turbines.
