Egypt, Pakistan and Morocco: Three Countries and Their Solar Process Heat Potential

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on February 27, 2015
LogosSurface treatment, food, chemical, textile and leather are the five industry sectors with the greatest potential for utilising solar thermal systems in Pakistan. Solar heat below 100 °C can contribute 5.6 million MWh per year to these five industries if 7.1 million m2 of collector area is installed in the country, although with long payback periods of between 10 and 20 years. These are some of the results of a market study which looks at Solar Thermal Energy for Industrial / Commercial Use in Pakistan, Egypt and Morocco and was commissioned by the International Finance Cooperation (IFC). Two Austrian companies, CES clean energy solutions (CES) and S.O.L.I.D., won the tender to carry out the study, which was completed in March 2014. A summary of the results can be found in the attached PDF.
