Algeria will soon float a massive tender to set up more than 4,000 megawatts of solar power capacity. According to media reports, Algeria’s Ministry of Energy will soon launch a tender for 4,020 megawatts of solar PV capacity. The tender is expected to be floated by this month’s end [...]
Algerian energy minister Youcef Yousfi unveiled the plans which include the development of 5 GW of wind energy and 2 GW of concentrated solar power (CSP).
ISCC Hassi R'mel project consists of a 150 MWe hybrid power plant composed of a combined cycle and a 25 MWe solar thermal plant.
The Algerian gas and electricity company, CEEG, recently invited prequalifications for a new concentrated solar power (“CSP”) programme in Algeria.
North African and Middle East Countries Poised to Upgrade Concentrated Solar Power Use with AfDB, World Bank, and CIF Support
The workshop presented an important opportunity for the five countries to discuss ways to deepen their effective use of CSP as a means to transform their national and regional energy paths.
The report offers solar energy (PV and Concentrating Solar Power) project details for each market along with country-specific demand forecasts to 2017.
The first phase, which is expected to start in 2013, will include 1,228MW from PV power plants, followed by 2,475MW of concentrated solar (CSP) and 516MW of wind energy by 2022.
According to a study of the German Aerospace Agency, Algeria has the largest long term land potential for concentrating solar thermal power plants.
The German Aerospace Center has announced that the first solar power tower concentrating solar power (CSP) plant in North Africa will be built in Boughezoul, Algeria, though a collaboration between Algeria and Germany.
The power plant will be constructed in Boughezoul, on the northern edge of the Sahara desert, and will serve primarily as a pilot and research facility.
Algeria wants to install 650 megawatts of solar energy by 2015, and a stunning 22 000 MW by 2030.
Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia have joined together to expedite the deployment of concentrated solar power (CSP) and exploit the region's vast solar energy resources.
The concentrating solar thermal power order was placed by Abengoa for its 150 megawatt (MW) solar hybrid plant operating at the Hassi R'Mel natural gas field in northern Algeria.
