Motivation

= obtaining low cost solar energy through open source design

"While Concentrated Solar Power has a great potential for delivering low cost solar power, most initiatives until now suffer from (too) high development costs. As a result these applications are not economically competitive with other sustainable energy generating techniques like wind turbines, PV panels or bio fuel. This initiative uses the “open source” business concept to significantly lower the upfront development costs for Concentrated Solar Power applications, and therefore minimizing the threshold for investors and production companies to move towards this market."
