HEAT TRANSFER FLUIDS
Researchers are developing fluids from molten salts or
metals that can work at temperatures as high as 800 °C.
The goal is to increase thermal-to-electric conversion
efficiencies to 50 percent or greater.
SELF-CLEANING REFLEC TORS
coatings can be applied to solar
collector mirrors to prevent dust
from sticking to the surface,
maximizing reflected sunlight.
