Energy transition from conventional to renewable sources of energy is yet to be realized in spite of several successful alternate energy production methods and installations. It is difficult to point more than one or two examples of a modern industries obtaining the bulk of its energy from sources other than oil, coal, and natural gas. The prospects for large-scale production of cost-effective renewable electricity / thermal energy remain to be generated utilizing either by the wind energy or certain forms of solar energy. Concentrates solar power (CSP) approach is the one of best advanced method to enhance the efficiency in solar thermal /electricity technology. Concentrate solar power (CSP) has great potential demand in world thermal and electrical energy needs. This presents the presents the work of scaled down models of parabolic dish, parabolic trough solar concentrators by utilizing the tapped heat from sun to utilize thermal and electrical application like water heating , drying along with its study of variations in temperature and pressure. Scaled down model was developed by using less cost materials like aluminum sheet for support TV dish (as parabolic dish), copper tube for conducting heat to the working fluid (water), wood, reflective sheet for proper reflection of sun’s heat onto a desired area. By using working fluid with good conductive materials and heat exchanges can increase efficiency of modeled system. We can suggest the best parameters of potential capability of extracting and utilizing the suns energy using concentrated solar power technology with new and research innovation methods. Solar energy systems can be used for a extensive variety of applications and give significant benefits, therefore, they should be used whenever possible.
