UW–Madison professor Mark Anderson is collaborating with Alstom Power, a major energy company, to build a new test facility at an off-campus research site. When complete, Anderson will use the facility to fine-tune the use of liquid salt in modern solar power plants that can operate at much higher temperatures. Find out why the advanced solar power plants that Alstom plans to build will be more efficient, and how that will help lower the cost of solar-generated electricity »
