GLOBAL FACTS

  • Solar thermal power plants are a lot like conventional power plants - with one major difference - they do not produce any pollutants.
  • A solar thermal power plant built on about 1% of the surface of the Sahara Desert would be sufficient to satisfy the entire world's electricity demand.
  • Solar thermal power plants reduce air pollution: The solar energy falling on an area the size of a basketball court is equivalent to 650 barrels of oil a year
  • Solar thermal power is reliable and available when needed most - during peak demand hours
  • Solar thermal power can be used with energy storage systems or combined with other energy sources to provide all day power
