The Brazilian Energy Initiative (2002)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 20, 2015

After the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) in Johannesburg, August 26-September 4, 2002, Professor José Goldemberg wrote this text to hit on a main point; renewable energy is a basic ingredient for sustainable development.

He writes a bit about the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development) and compares OECD countries’ energy habits with those of other countries.  He also points out problems with the proposal set forth at the WSSD and has numerous graphs to help analyze most given data.

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 20, 2015

This Quarterly update from January – March 1977, prepared by the Energy Information Program of the Technology Application Center, was written at The University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico. 

Among other topics like legal and political implications, this document includes comparisons to other forms of energy in relation to solar thermal power.  There are also updates on innovations in solar thermal power generation process such as direct hydrogen production.

Concentrating Solar Thermal Systems for Generating Electricity (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on December 7, 2011

This is a presentation from the Mexican Non-Conventional Energy Management Electric Power Research Institute aimed at describing the perspectives of using concentrating solar power (CSP) technologies, and the implications stemming from this choice. It was made during the Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE) Electricity Workshop held in Paraguay in May 2010.

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.
