Concentrated Solar Power can be the solution of today. Solar power being available in plenty can be harnessed using many of the concentrated solar power technologies. Climate changes are observed throughout the world and according to research reports, fresh water resources are drying up at a very high rate. In order to tackle the need of fresh water, Concentrated Solar desalination is prosed. Parabolic trough collector technology is to be employed with simple distillation phenomenon. Construction, calculations, implementation and results would be discussed in this report.
