Solar collectors are a great way to jump towards a new kind of alternative energy-rendering piece but there are issues which include that of safety. Apparently solar-collecting dishes do have some safety issues, particularly in the cooling issue since one can just imagine the amount of solar energy that these things can hold.
But an IBM-led group seems to have broken ground with this solar collector dish which was built to withstand and/or avoid overheating issues while maintaining its actual function.
Hundreds of photovoltaic chips used will remain cooled through a microchannel water cooling process. The photovoltaic system is reportedly capable of concentrating the power of 2,000 suns on average while being able to collect 80% of incoming radiation and converting it to energy for the masses.
The proposed system is capable of being installed at just about anywhere sustainable energy, drinkable water and cool air are difficult to come across, and your pockets would smile too, as it comes at cost of three times lower compared to other systems in the market.
