Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on February 18, 2015

This presentation on solar water heating (SWH) systems was given by Dr. Mohamed Erhouma, Head of Solar Thermal Energy Conversion Department at CSERS (Center for Solar Energy Research and Studies) at a workshop on “Promoting Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency in Libya” organized jointly by  REAOL (the Renewable Energy Authority of Libya) and the World Bank.

Regional Market Assessment Report in the Mediterranean Countries

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on October 28, 2014

The purpose of this regional market assessment report is to help overcome some relevant barriers which currently prevent solar water heating (SWH) systems from providing a larger share of energy supply in Mediterranean countries, i.e. the lack of knowledge and trust on the technology, as well as the lack of systematic statistics on the solar thermal market and industry, and the very limited return on experiences.

Market Assessment Report and Solar Thermal Action Plan for the Mediterranean Region

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 26, 2013

“The Mediterranean region is endowed with a significant market potential and could become a frontrunner in the development of solar water heating and cooling technologies in several application areas.” This is one conclusion of the study “Solar Thermal in the Mediterranean Region - Market Assessment Report” published in September 2012. The association Observatoire Méditerranéen de l'Energie (OME) worked on both the report and a “Solar Thermal Action Plan” for the Mediterranean Region, which was published in December 2012, on behalf of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) (see the attached documents).

An Overview of CSP in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East (2008)

Submitted by Hans Craen on May 6, 2009

This document from 2008 gives a comprehensive overview of CSP development in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. The paper first looks into the key drivers and key inhibitors that impact the growth of CSP. Particular attention is given to the cost factor of CSP such as initial investment costs and the operating & maintenance costs.

Concentrating Solar Power for Seawater Desalination (2007)

Submitted by Hans Craen on April 6, 2009

This extensive study from 2007 assesses in a detailed way the potential of concentrated solar power (CSP) systems for large scale seawater desalination. The geographical scope of the report focuses on the urban centres in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

The objective of the study is to demonstrate that these large scale CSP processes can be used to provide water supply in a balanced, affordable and secure way and as such helping avoiding a threatening fresh water deficit.
