Most suited rendering method for concentrated sunlight

Gentlemen,
I am a newbie in rendering. I would like your opinion on rendering a peculiar model and ask which method you would employ for it. I have a model of a concentrated solar power facility like the one in the attached image. In such a system, the mirrors follow the sun's path and concentrate the normal solar irradiance of the sun in one point. I am trying to understand if it is possible to render such a model in a way that I will see the sun reflected in the mirrors and the glare in the point where the mirrors focus the sunglight.
I can render it without such concerns and show them via brightness and other settings in the post-processing phase in a photo editor. But is there an algorithm that can give me this result mathematically?
Thank you. Any ideas/concerns about the case are welcome.
Chris
