Yes, this was actually the first kind of solar energy before photovoltaic cells were invented. The basic principle is that you use the sun to heat up water into steam which then is used to move a turbine. This turbine is connected to a generator and, voila, you have electricity. The most popular use for solar thermal is actually water heating for domestic and industrial uses.
These types of systems that use the sun’s heat to generate electricity are now being given serious consideration as alternative forms of energy production. Many experts hope modern and adapted forms of these crude models can be used for serious industrial output in the green future.
