Solar thermal power plants, due to their capacity for large-scale generation of electricity and the possible integration of thermal storage devices and hybridization with backup fossil fuels, are meant to supply a significant part of the demand in the countries of the solar belt [1]. Nowadays, the high-temperature thermal conversion of concentrated solar energy is rapidly increasing with many commercial projects taken up in Spain, USA, and other countries such as India, China, Israel, Australia, Algeria, and Italy. This is the most promising technology to follow the pathway of wind energy in order to reach the goals for renewable energy implementation in 2020 and 2050.
