Solar Power Tower
1 of 9
The monolithic Solar Power Tower in Sanlúcar la Mayor near Seville was designed to prevent the emission of more than 600,000 metric tons of greenhouses gases each year. A mirror array on the ground focuses beams of sunlight on the top of the 160-meter-tall tower, giving it an angelic glow and powering a steam turbine.
