ENEXIO presents innovative cooling technology at North Africa Renewable Energy Summit

People who have to survive years of drought would certainly appreciate some of the rainfall that other regions of the world receive or in general to have more water resources available. That’s why ENEXIO and 12 further organizations are partnering within MinWaterCSP to develop customized, reliable and sustainable solutions [...]

The challenges and potential rewards of transitioning to concentrated solar power to desalinate seawater

Freshwater shortages are projected to increase in our hotter and more crowded future. Already, 150 countries desalinate seawater, using fossil fuels. But supplying an ever-increasing basic need with non-renewable fuels creates a growing threat, according to Dr. Diego-César Alarcón-Padilla, who heads up SolarPACES Task VI at the Solar Desalination Unit [...]

Innovative solutions on the reduction of water consumption in Concentrated Solar Power plants

Concentrated solar power (CSP) is a promising electricity generation technology full of growing potential. However, traditional wet-cooled CSP plants often consume a large amount of water which especially causes a challenge in arid areas where water resources are scarce. The International Conference on “Reduction of water consumption in CSP plants” [...]
