Solar Thermal Power Generation: Potential in Algeria & Hassi R’Mel Project (2008)

Submitted by Hans Craen on October 2, 2009

This presentation from 2008 assesses the potential of Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) development in Algeria. The first part gives a general overview of the basics of CSP after which the presentation explains how solar thermal energy is being promoted through renewable energy related programmes.

The main targets for Algeria are to increase the renewable energy production to 5% by 2010 as well as the energy export via under-sea connection to the European market.

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.
