The description:

The main principle of Concentrated Solar Power or Solar Thermal Power is the use of reflecting systems that send sunlight to a receiver usually found on the top of a solar tower. This receiver transforms the concentrated sunlight into a thermal power that can be transferred lately into electricity by using turbines that generate power at night.
