Here's some more ecovation from Abu Dhabi. Solar-powered plants will be built by Sener from Spain and Masdar from Abu Dhabi. These plants are expected to produce 1,000 megawatts within 10 years time. The design scheme involves mirrors on the ground which will reflect the sunlight to the top of the tower and the tower in turn will create steam which will power an electricity turbine that will distribute solar energy to the rest of the city. This stuff is rocket science to me. But if it works with a minimum degree of damage to the ecosystem, it sounds great to me.
