Solar tower technology is a type of furnace that uses a tower to absorb focussed sunlight. It uses lots of flat, movable mirrors to focus the sun's rays upon a tower which collects them for use as energy. This type of power collection is seen as a viable solution for renewable energy. Solar towers are located in large, uninhabited areas like deserts. In this case towers are air-cooled rather than water-cooled to avoid using the limited water found in the desert. Thermal storage stores the heat in molten salt containers so they continue to produce electricity when the sun isn't shining. Steam can be heated to 500ÂșC to drive the turbines in the towers which produce the electricity.
