Stanford Has a Process to Make Solar Power Production More Than Twice as Efficient to as High as 60% efficient
New thermionic process that could be used as a kind of topping cycle to typical concentrating solar power systems (coating receiver faces of stirling dishes and maybe regular trough CSP solar thermal?).
