Sunflower-shaped solar concentrator

Scientists who get inspiration from sunflowers, developed a "sunflower-shaped solar concentrator." They said that this concentration will make revolutionary changes in the field of solar energy. The new solar concentrator will use several mirrors to focus sunlight onto a converter chip. Experts say this solar concentrator can be used to provide electricity in remote areas.

Scientists hope that this program can develop photovoltaic systems with affordability, and be able to collect 80 percent of the sunlight and convert it into electricity. This system can be any lack of sustainable energy, the construction of drinking water and cold areas, only a third of the cost of similar systems. This prototype system uses a large parabolic reflector, constituted by several small mirrors. They are connected with a tracking system.
