In this publication, the fee of the eu groups offers the complaints of the Workshop on sun critical Receiver tasks, held in Varese, I taly , in June 1984. This Workshop was once supported by means of all operators of sun tower energy vegetation worldwide and, accordingly, those complaints offer a accomplished review of the know-how in its present country of improvement. The Workshop was once prepared via the fee of the eu groups within the body of the second one solar power R&D programme lower than the accountability of its Di rectorate-General (X eleven) for technological know-how, learn and improvement in Brussels. The assembly position, Varese, in Italy, used to be chosen as a result of its neighbourhood to the Ispra institution of the Commission's Joint examine Centre who cooperated within the association of the Workshop. solar energy vegetation of the critical receiving kind have conflicting features: they hire extremely simple and classical parts yet as a approach they're of great complexity. It was once the desire for swift development through the use of to be had parts that guided the selections taken within the overdue seventies to construct six huge experimental crops: 4 in Europe, one in Japan and one within the usa. at the moment, this know-how loved excessive precedence in solar power R&D around the globe. as soon as the vegetation have been accomplished, even if, it grew to become transparent that the technical complexity mixed with tricky meteorological stipulations at so much development websites made the yields much less beneficial than anticipated.
