    Solar Updraft Towers Solar updraft towers were designed as an alternative to other current energy sources that are nonrenewable by using kinetic energy to transfer heat. The technology in a solar updraft tower is that it incorporates a large greenhouse-type structure, referred to as a collector, which generates heat from the sun and transfers the heat by convection out of a tall chimney tower that is at the center of the structure. As hot air rises and evacuates from the top of the tower, a…
