Concentrating solar power plant (CSP), computer artwork. Arrays of heliostats (mirrors with sun-tracking motion) surround a central tower and receiver (top of tower). The heliostats reflect sunlight and concentrate it at the receiver (bright light). The concentrated solar energy is then used to produce electrical power by boiling water to produce steam, which is piped to a steam turbine electricity generator. This CSP plant is located in a desert.
