Today worldwide concerns about the best way of utilization of the natural energy and developing technique to reduce pollution. Stirling engine is one of the best example of heat engine which convert heat energy into mechanical work. Stirling engine is based on Stirling cycle. Stirling engine is also operated by heat from sunrays. The solar Stirling have better efficiency than that of other solar device like photovoltaic cell, solar panel etc. the aim of this paper is to focus on the comparison between solar dish stirling engine and solar panel and photovoltaic cell in order to generate electricity. Solar dish Stirling is efficient to convert 1/3rd of sunlight into electricity. Ripasso energy, a solar technology company designed a new Stirling dish modules that set a new record of 31-32% efficiency. In this paper I review the new upcoming plans related to solar Stirling engine that bring our generation into new world. I also try to explore the future use of Stirling engine and how it is better, effective and efficient than other solar devices. Many companies work in this field to make solar Stirling engine as a less expensive product for customers. In the coming world solar dish Stirling engine replace the photovoltaic cells and other solar devices.
