One of the most ambitious solar plant projects taking root right in the Sahara desert’s vast resources of sunshine, could power Europe for years. A Malta-backed project this week filed a permit request to the Tunisian energy ministry to build a 4.5GW capacity solar farm in the southwest of [...]
A giant solar project on the edge of the Sahara Desert has taken a step closer to reality, as developers of the proposed TuNur scheme filed an authorisation request with the Tunisian Ministry of Energy, Mines and Renewable Energy. The consortium wants to build several huge concentrated solar plants (CSPs) [...]
Developer TuNur this week applied for authorisation to build a massive solar plant on the edge of the Tunisian Sahara, with undersea grid connections to Europe. There has been talk of tapping into the Sahara desert’s vast resources of sunshine to power Europe for years, but little to show for [...]
Part of what makes TuNur feasible is the falling cost of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP).
TuNur Concentrated Solar Power project aims to bring two gigawatts of solar power to the UK from Tunisia
The TuNur project aims to bring two gigawatts of concentrated solar power to the UK from Tunisia if the company wins a contract for difference (CFD) from the British government.
Nur Energie, a developer of solar power, plans a 2 GW Concentrated Solar Power Plant in Tunisia and deliver the solar energy through a dedicated cable to Italy.
The TuNur concentrated solar power (CSP) project would export electricity to as many as 2.5 million homes.
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.
DESERTEC demonstrates a way to provide climate protection, energy security and development by generating sustainable power from the sites where renewable sources of energy are at their most abundant.
TuNur, a joint-venture company between NurEnergie, a solar power plant developer based in England, and a collection of Tunisian investors, has seized upon the unmet export market of solar energy from Tunisia to Europe.
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.
Tunisian Sahara will allow Tunisia to be the largest exporter of concentrating solar power in the world by 2016.
British investors have proposed the construction of this solar energy facility in Rjim Maaatoug in southwest Tunisia, which will be directly connected to the European electric grid.
