Ivanpah, 2015

Earlier this year, American photographer MICHAEL DAVID FRIBERG paid a visit to Ivanpah, the worlds largest concentrated solar thermal power plant located in the California Mojave Desert. The result is a fascinating series that has been published in an editorial for the the german edition of WIRED Magazine and which shows the incredible size of the project but also of the clean technology market.

I have seen a lot of crazy stuff in my life but as I stood on a tower 600 feet up as hundreds of thousands of mirrors reflected sunlight back towards me, I felt a mixture of awe and terror that I’ve never experienced. The plant uses around 300,000 mirrors out in the desert to reflect sunlight back up towards a tower that then superheats steam which then spins a turbine and generates electricity. – MICHAEL DAVID FRIBERG
