PROMES solar furnace - The Four Solaire d'Odeillo, originally uploaded by Dave Walsh Photography. The Four Solaire d'Odeillo giant solar furnace, at the PROMES laboratory at the CNRS facility at Odeillo, France. By focussing intense sunlight through a system mirrors, the Four Solaire can generate the power of 10,000 suns (1000 kilowatts) and reached temperatures of over 3000 degrees Celcius. Most of the research work here concerns the conversion, storage and transportation of energy. <!--<!--PROMES and THEMIS - Images by Dave Walsh
