Chapter
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Energy book series (BRIEFSENERGY)

Abstract

An overview of what has been achieved in this book is presented in this chapter. Starting from the position of the sun to the prototyping of the solar tracker and culminating at the construction of the solar concentrator is briefly explained. Future steps that can enhance the robustness of the solar tracker, the perfection of the solar paraboloid and the improvement of the reflective material are also exhibited. Ultimately, details about a braking mechanism as means to reduce the power consumption of the 30 W solar tracker is lucubrated.
