Solar power plants are the only reliable source of clean electricity in most parts of the world.
Now a team of researchers is developing the world’s first solar power plant with a completely different purpose.
The facility is called the Solar System Order and is designed to take care of the sun’s “dark side” while keeping it out of the way of humans.
“It’s the only plant in the world that’s really capable of doing this,” Dr. Daniel Schäfer, one of the researchers, told Business Insider.
The research, published in the journal Science Advances, has been designed to save the planet from the impacts of solar storms, which are caused by solar flares, solar flares that appear as large balls of plasma that are then released by the sun.
Solar storms, when the sun shines at a particular spot and the Earth’s magnetic field reverses, can result in powerful storms that can damage or even kill people.
Solar panels like the one pictured in this undated photo released by Solar SystemOrder, Inc., are part of a system of solar power plants designed to protect Earth from the effects of solar flares.
The Solar System order system is designed for the protection of Earth from solar flares and other solar events, said the study’s lead author, Dr. David Kavanagh.
The plant’s design uses solar panels, a solar array, a geothermal heat pump and a cooling system to keep the solar flare-prone Earth safe from its harmful effects.
When the solar flares appear, the panels and array produce enough energy to cool down the Earth, which would then allow for more solar flares to arrive.
But the system’s design is also designed to minimize the solar storms’ effects.
“You’re taking a solar flare and a solar storm, and you’re not cooling them off,” Kavanah said.
“Instead of cooling them down, they’re cooling off the atmosphere.”
“We’re basically saying we can reduce the amount of energy that the sun will be releasing into the Earth,” Schäffer said.
To make the system work, Schäffer and his team used a new technology called “thermal-conducting” to create a heat exchanger.
This process involves heating a molten salt to a high temperature, which causes it to cool and crystallize, creating a small salt solution.
“Thermal-condensing technology is very cool, because it’s essentially an additive that’s been developed in the past to do thermal insulation,” Schaufer said.
The team was able to make a thermal-conductive solution to protect the planet’s atmosphere from the sun, the team said in a statement.
This is the first solar plant in history designed to use thermal-condensers.
The system uses the sun as a heat conductor, Schauffer said.
In the process, the solar panels also generate a lot of energy, which they use to keep them running.
“The solar panels produce enough electricity to keep a solar system running for hundreds of years,” Schaffer said, adding that the technology is designed specifically for protecting Earth from weather events.
The technology could also be used for a variety of other applications, including keeping humans safe from radiation and pollution.
“This system could provide a safe haven for humans on Earth during the event, such as an evacuation of humans from space or a quarantine zone, and it could also provide a backup power source to a disaster or emergency,” Kavainagh said.
Solar Power plants are still a relatively new concept, with solar power being considered to be a relatively low-cost option compared to traditional power sources like coal and nuclear power.
But these systems have some major advantages over their conventional counterparts.
The solar panels can be designed to provide enough power to last for years and can be made of a flexible material like silicon, which could help keep the panels stable.
Schäfers team also claims the design allows the solar power to be made from a wide variety of materials.
“We could have built this plant on the moon or on Mars,” Schafer said.
