mirrored solar dish that looks like a home satellite receiver, and produces 3.5 kilowatts of energy
Using its Stirling engine technology, Inifnia thinks it can eventually produce electricity 20 to 30 percent cheaper than today’s existing solar panels. And in times of peak energy demand—on a hot summer day, for instance—it could even be competitive with electricity from gas-powered or coal-fired plants.
ingenheiro on 2008-02-12300 years after its invention, Stirling engines are coming to stay... and probably take a nice share of the Solar Power market. the cost perspective is also quite attractive. these structures cost now around $20 000 against 50 to $100 000 3 years ago.
