coondoggie writes"The US Department of Energy wants researchers and scientists to 'think outside the box' and come up 'highly disruptive Concentrating Solar Power technologies that will meet 6/kWh cost targets by the end of the decade.' The DOE's 'SunShot Concentrating Solar Power R&D' is a multimillion dollar endeavor that intends to look beyond what it calls incremental near-term tosupport research into transformative technologies that will break through performance barriers known today such as efficiency and temperature limitations."
