Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on February 17, 2011

This article was written by a group of researchers from the Almeria Solar Platform in Spain (CIEMAT) and explores the results of the research activities undertaken in this Platform with respect to solar desalination in the framework of the Aquasol Project.

Solar desalination is a feasible and attractive option for regions suffering from fresh water shortage and benefiting from high insolation levels.

The Aquasol Project initiated in 2002 and is expected to reduce the overall system investment cost as well as improve energy efficiency.
