Solar Chimney Towers 
Atmospheric Vortex Engine The purpose of the Atmospheric Vortex Engine (AVE) is to produce clean carbon free electrical energy. The AVE uses a controlled vortex to harness the huge amount of energy produced when heat is transported upward by convection in the atmosphere. Mechanical energy is produced when water descends or when warm air rises. The Vortex Engine captures the energy produced when warm air rises by creating an air vortex which acts as a virtual vertical conduit. The vortex is produced by admitting warm or humid air tangentially into a circular arena. Tangential entries cause the warm moist air to spin as it rises forming an “anchored vortex”. The vortex engine has the same basis as the proven solar chimney except the physical tube of the solar chimney is replaced with centrifugal force in the vortex

Design of Commercial Solar Updraft Tower Systems Utilization of Solar Induced Convective Flows for Power Generation. A solar updraft tower power plant – sometimes also called 'solar chimney' or just ‘solar tower’ – is a solar thermal power plant utilizing a combination of solar air collector and central updraft tube to generate a solar induced convective flow which drives pressure staged turbines to generate electricity, pdf file

Solar Updraft Towers: Their Role in Remote On-Site Generation pdf file
Solar Tower Demo Spain SolarMission Technologies and its Australian subsidiary, EnviroMission Limited produced this 5 minute video on the pilot plant in Spain. The solar updraft tower is a proposed type of renewable-energy power plant. Air is heated in a very large circular greenhouse-like structure, and the resulting convection causes the air to rise and escape through a tall tower

Solar Power Towers Solar power towers consist of a large field of sun-tracking mirrors, called heliostats, which focus solar energy on a receiver atop a centrally located tower. The enormous amount of energy, coming out of the sun rays, concentrated at one point (the tower in the middle), produces temperatures of approx. 550°C to 1500°C, pdf file
