IBM Research has announced that it’s working on a highly efficient, low-cost system that’s capable of harnessing the energy of 2,000 suns. The system, which is targeted at dry regions such as southern Europe, Africa, the south west of North America, South America, and Australia, will have an overall efficiency of 80% — and, miraculously, be able to provide a source of fresh water, too.
