Stunning photos of Ivanpah SEGS

Photographer Jamey Stillings has produced some really stunning photos of the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating Systems, which when complete will be the world´s largest concentrating solar power (CSP) project.

For those of you not familiar with CSP (also called solar thermal electric), it is a solar technology based on concentrating sunlight to heat a fluid, which then drives a turbine, much the same as in a conventional natural gas-fired plant. It´s a really cool technology in part because it can accommodate low-cost thermal energy storage.
