This is a turn up for the books, it seems that while everyone’s backs were turned Iran have been building a serious solar power plant, which use the CSP process, and this is where a parabolic mirror is positioned so that the maximum reflection is pointed towards a tube of water.
This creates steam, which will go on to turn turbines; it is these that generate the electricity. This process has been used in other countries such as Spain, where the climate permits such a system, as this can only work in hot countries with little cloud. These plants however can produce around 20 Mw of power.
