Dow will be showcasing a range of solutions including DOWTHERM A, the world’s leading specialized High Temperature Heat Transfer Fluid.
Demonstrating its ongoing commitment to the Middle East’s rapidly growing solar industry, The Dow Chemical Company will showcase its innovative range of solutions for the Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) industry at the CSP MENASOL 2013 5th North Africa & Middle East Solar Conference & Expo.
Solar power technology like CSP offers many advantages in regions that require reliable new sources of energy. The technology helps diversify energy supply, is capable of producing power during periods of peak demand, and reduces dependence on fossil fuels. When used instead of fossil fuel generation plants, CSP facilities offer improved air quality and can help many nations to address off-set goals for carbon emission produced by existing fossil fuel power plants. Unlike photovoltaic solar power and wind energy technologies, CSP plants can operate in conjunction with cost-effective thermal storage technology to deliver energy on-demand, making CSP a highly flexible source of renewable energy.
