Desalination Units Powered by Renewable Energy Systems: Opportunities & Challenges (2005)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on January 18, 2011

This document gathers a series of papers presented during the International Seminar held in Hammamet, Tunisia in 2005. The seminar was organised in the framework of the ADU-RES project (Co-ordination Action for Autonomous Desalination Units based on Renewable Energy Systems). This project received funding from the European Commission from 2004 to 2006 and it remained active ever since, working more like a network of contacts and best practices.

Implementation of New and Emerging Technologies in Israel (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on November 2, 2010

This document was produced by Amnon Samid and presented during a panel discussion of the UN Commission on Science and Technology for Development meeting in Geneva in 2009.

The document explores the energy resources of Israel and the government plans to increase the use of renewables in the country. Israel has experienced a considerable growth of the per-capita energy usage. It increased by 44% since 1990. The EU average per-capita energy usage increased by 15% during the same period.

Solar Thermal Desalination Systems with Multi-layer Heat Recovery (2004)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on October 26, 2010

This document was produced by researchers of the Solar-Institut Jülich, Universidade Federal do Ceara and RWE-Aqua and explores the benefits of using systems with multi-layer heat recovery in solar thermal desalination plants.
The project, financed by Greenpeace International, looked at three concrete examples of desalination plants, using multi-layer heat recovery:

Assessment of the Techno-Economic Potential of CSP for Electricity and Desalination in Mediterranean Partner Countries (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on October 22, 2010

This document is one of the deliverables of the MED-CSD project. The main aim of this FP7 project is the assessment of the technico-economic potential of CSP for electricity and desalination in the Mediterranean region.

The document explores the demand for water and electricity in the Mediterranean and assesses the market potential of CSP in a number of countries (Cyprus, Egypt, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Jordan, Israel, Syria, Turkey and Lebanon).

Combined Heat Power Desalination and District Cooling with CSP (2008)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on September 30, 2010

This presentation was made by Jürgen Kern from the company kernenergien, during the Euromed Solar Workshop on EU-MENA Cooperation on Solar Power, in Jordan, 2008.

The presentation includes information and data on the expected power demand in the MENA and Southern Europe region, the water demand by sector, the technologies available and the potential for renewable electricity in the area.

Schemes for Subsidizing Renewable Energy Driven Desalination (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on September 7, 2010

This report was released as part of the Project ProDes (Promotion of Renewable Energy for Water production through Desalination).

The project ProDes (2008-2010) brings together 14 European organisations in order to support the market development of renewable energy desalination technology in Southern Europe.

India: Two Solar Desalination Pilot Projects by Tinox-Mage

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on August 28, 2010

 MiniSal 1000” One box on three Euro palettes brings the desalination unit to the site: The MiniSal 1000 purifies up to 1,000 litres of sea or brackish water per day like this installation in the town of Al-Hail in Oman. The first two pilot projects in India are already under way.

Renewable Desalination Market Analysis: Oceania, South Africa, Middle East & North Africa (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on August 16, 2010

This report was released as part of the Project ProDes (Promotion of Renewable Energy for Water production through Desalination).

The project ProDes (2008-2010) brings together 14 European organisations in order to support the market development of renewable energy desalination technology in Southern Europe. At present the main renewable energy technology options for powering desalination (reverse osmosis or distillation technologies) are: solar thermal, concentrated solar power, photovoltaic, wind power, geothermal energy and ocean energy.
