What sets the Gemsolar Power Plant in Spain apart from the others is that it generates electricity at night. That’s right, “the regular sunshine in southern Spain means the facility can therefore operate through most nights, guaranteeing electrical production for a minimum of 270 days per year, up to three times more than other renewable energies.” Video after the break.

The project, a joint venture between Abu Dhabu energy company Masdar and Spanish engineering firm SENER called Torresol Energy, took two years to construct at a cost of $426.8-million. It is expected to produce 110 GWh/year – enough to power 25,000 homes in the Andalucia region.
