I detailed in my last post the cutting-edge solar thermal plant in Abu Dhabi called Shams 1, but it's hard to get a sense of just how big this plant is without seeing it first-hand. Here is a video with Sarah Backhouse from Future360 TV that gives you an in-depth tour of the solar plant. This technology has been implemented in hot desert regions in California and Arizona as well. What do you think? Leave your comments below.
