World’s largest concentrated solar power plant opens.
'Shams 1' has opened in Abu Dhabi, producing up to 100-megawatts as part of a greater plan to generate seven percent of the emirate's energy by renewable means by 2020.
Instead of using photovoltaic cells to directly generate energy like a traditional solar power plant, concentrated solar power plants use parabolic mirrors or lenses to collect heat and drive turbines and create energy.
