この傾斜によるズレがミウラ折りの肝です。通常の折り方では、折り目が重なる箇所が膨らんでしまいそのぶん厚みがでる。けれどもミウラ折りでは、折り目がズレているからこそ幾重にも重ねられるし、かさ張らない。また通常では使っているうちに折りが逆に曲がったりして破れやすくなるのですが、ミウラ折りでは折り方向が決まっているので破れにくく長く使えるという長所もあります。 (via 実は宇宙構造研究の副産物、「ミウラ折り」ってどう折るの? | 地球のココロ:@nifty)

In February, the Ivanpah Solar Electricity Generating System opened over a 3,500-acre stretch of the Mojave Desert. The solar thermal farm operates at 392 megawatts—just under 1 percent of California’s total energy production, or enough to power 140,000 homes.
The Ivanpah solar farm eliminates 450,000 tons of carbon emissions annually, the equivalent of taking 88,000 cars off the road.
