Paper Abstract

A new approach towards large scale solar systems is described. Solar Reflective Tower systems for thermal applications that can achieve peak solar concentration of 10000 are the first systems that can be used for combined cycle gas turbines. Using a combination of high solar concentration and spectrum splitting it is possible to operate simultaneously solar thermal, solar lasers and concentrated photo-voltaic systems. After demonstration in laboratory scale two industrial projects were initiated to develop the technology to industrial scale. Within these projects, close cooperation between several industries, universities and a research institute take place. The goal of these projects is to industrialize the technologies towards the year 2000.
