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

In addition, it also looks into the schematic differences between a conventional and an advanced desalination plant. The presentation concludes with a comparison between multi-effect distillation and reverse osmosis membrane desalination.
