A team at IBM recently developed what they call a High Concentration PhotoVoltaic Thermal (HCPVT) or, in simple words, a solar collector. It is a system that is capable of concentrating the power of 2,000 suns, they are even claiming to be able to concentrate energy safely up to 5,000X, that’s huge. The process of trapping the sunlight produces water that can be used to produce filtered drinkable water, or used for other things like air conditioning, etc. Scientists envision that the HCPVT system could
