A new coating material developed by UCSD researchers could help make concentrated solar power (CSP) plants more efficient. The key factor when it comes to solar power plant efficiency – be they of the photovoltaic or concentrated solar power (CSP) variety – is the amount of light that can be captured by the light-absorbing material and converted into electricity or heat.
