This coating dramatically improves the energy collection yield of thermal solar collectors for thermal solar power plant. The coating is optimised to remain stable at high temperatures and to ensure a long durability. By increasing the energy collection yields of thermal solar power plants and by increasing the operating temperatures of the power plants, it is possible to increase dramatically the efficiency of solar to electric energy conversion rate.
