Morocco is following in Chile’s footsteps with two new solar hybrid complexes that will maximize synergies and optimize the cost per kilowatt hour. The first of these independent power projects, Noor Midelt, is envisioned as a solar power complex with a total installed capacity of 400 MW, utilizing 80–85% CSP [...]
NamPower says that results of a pre-feasibility study on the use of biomass and CSP for power generation in the country are promisin.
The head of one of Oman’s largest electricity distribution companies has mooted the idea of a large-scale concentrating solar thermal power hybrid project.
The proposed project’s natural gas-fired, combined-cycle generating equipment will be supplemented with a solar thermal generating equipment.
This is the second plant in the world developed with this technology by Abengoa. The plant will generate electricity on a large scale using natural gas and solar energy.
The World Bank has partnered with Morocco and Egypt on two innovative projects that use a hybrid concentrated solar power (CSP) technology to reduce dependency on fossil fuels and cut greenhouse gas emissions.
