|Product : Concentrated Solar Flower
||Idea : HSL-design
Creation of a concept which uses CSP (Concentrated Solar Power) and puts it into practical use. This Concentrated Solar Flower is a big pole, about the size of a windmill, with leaf shaped mirrors wich direct the sunlight into one central point. In this point the generated heat is converted directly to electrical power using a sterling engine. The mirrors follow the sun like a sunflower. The mirrors fold shut when the sun sets.
Work included the making of several concepts and chosing the most promising. The emphasis lies on idea generation and concept building. Also the engineering was important, setting the technology of CSP to use and make a product that can stand the forces of nature.
