The SOLAR HOURGLASS is a draft of a central solar receiver, which consists of an arrangement of small, flat mirrors that concentrate their reflection of solar energy on a tank that contains a heating medium. Hundreds of households can be electrified even at night or in bad weather. In 2014, Cortés won the LAGI Design Contest with this project.
