The Sun Shines a Bit More in Härnösand (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 14, 2010

This is a document released by the Swedish company Absolicon about the solar thermal and PV project being carried out through a public-private partnership in the small town of Härnösand in Sweden.

The hospital in Härnösand is now an example of energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources for Sweden and Europe. 50 m2 of suntracking solar panels, generating
power and heat simultaneously, were installed on the roof of the hospital.

New Technology Produces Economic Solar-Electricity Combined with Seawater Desalination (2003)

Submitted by Hans Craen on October 27, 2009

This paper from 2003 looks into the possibility to develop a solar thermal plant in the region of Toshka, in the Nile valley. The case study which is described foresees the placing of flat mirror concentrators located between 3 to 5 meter above the ground. This would offer multiple synergy effects such as the possibility to grow plants or to build offices underneath the mirrors, thus enabling social and economic development in the area.

Thematic Review of GEF-Financed Solar Thermal Projects (2001)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on September 7, 2009

This paper reports the developments of four projects financed by the UN Global Environment Facility (GEF) in India, Morocco, Mexico and Egypt. The GEF chose those countries to develop solar thermal power technology as it has shown to be one of the most cost efficient options for renewable bulk power production, besides being the most cost-effective way of producing electricity from solar radiation.

Combined Solar Power and Desalination Plants: Update on the MED-CSD Project (2009)

Submitted by Hans Craen on May 14, 2009

This presentation from 2009 provides an update of the MED-CSD project. The main aim of this project is the assessment of the technico-economic potential of CSP for electricity and desalination in the Mediterranean region. The presentation first gives a global overview by linking the regions suffering from water scarcity with the global potential for concentrating solar power.

Emerging Technology Option for Clean Power Generation - Concentrated Solar Power (2009)

Submitted by Hans Craen on May 5, 2009

This 2009 paper underlines the overall benefits of solar power especially when considered as part of a country or region's energy generation options mix. In addition to listing the available technologies, the document also looks into the economics of solar thermal and provides a summary comparison among parabolic through, central receiver and parabolic dish technologies.
