Abstract

In 2011, an innovative technique for concentrating solar light has been introduced in the market—the Linear Mirror. It is a very simple device, and it works well also in winter and in northern climates. In 2012, it was certified with the Solar Keymark. Based on this technology, a further improved device was developed and was presented here—the Linear Mirror of second generation (or Linear Mirror II). This is a multi-purpose machine, which overcomes some of the limitations of the previous device. First measurements with the Linear Mirror II are presented in this paper.
