Odeillo solar power plant

The largest solar furnace in the world is at Odeillo in the Pyrenees-Orientales in France, opened in 1970. It employs an array of plane mirrors to gather the rays of light from the sun, reflecting them on to a larger curved mirror. The rays are then focused onto an area the size of a cooking pot and can reach 3,000 °C (5,430 °F).
