Building Cooling and Heating, with Solar Robotic Concentrated Thermal Collectors by Lighthouse Group

This proposals suggests using rooftop space for the collection of solar energy in a different way than what is usually proposed. A good revision would expand upon this differentiation, and would explore how this would fit in with the current MIT Facilities development plan.

in the revision of our proposal we have included and elaborate on the following :
For the first time globally plastic or glass Fresnel lenses are used in concentrated solar thermal collectors with point focus at the local level, for high temperature applications like heating/cooling (13), desalination, process heat etc.
We are certain that Lighthouse Solar Collector can play a major role in the reduction of GHG emissions not only in the MIT campus but globally (15) , as well as to contribute to other major problems like water purification (thermal treatment).
Climate Colab contest is a great opportunity for us to show our work and attract interest in optimizing the Lighthouse Solar Collector as final products suited to different applications and commercialize it globally (15).
