Surface area in the Sahara desert required to power the world with solar energy only – World of Engineering

Surface area of 380 km by 380 km (236 mi by 236 mi) in the Sahara desert required to power the world with solar energy only. Concentrated solar power (CSP, also known as concentrating solar power, concentrated solar thermal) systems generate solar power by using mirrors or lenses to concentrate a large area of sunlight [...]

Delta Drone International’s Rocketfarm pilots Africa’s first concentrated solar power plant survey

Delta Drone International has demonstrated its expertise in tailored done solutions, with its agriculture specialist brand, RocketFarm piloting Africa’s first concentrated solar power plant survey(CSP). The survey, which is a first in Africa and possibly the world, is extremely complex due to the constant movement of the tracking panels that move [...]

Namibia-Botswana project for building both photovoltaic and concentrated solar power plants

The signing of an agreement between Namibia and Botswana to construct a mega solar photovoltaic project is imminent, Namibian Minister for Mines and Energy Tom Alweendo has shared. A full feasibility study will then follow to determine the location and size of the project setting in motion construction plans for [...]

Kalulushi concentrated solar power plant in Zambia gears up for construction

Zambia is set construct Kalulushi concentrated solar plant in the Copperbelt Province as dough continues to bite in the country rendering hydro projects untenable. A Zambian subsidiary of the Chinese firm Sinohydro was chosen to carry out the civil engineering work for the construction of the project. The Kalulushi [...]

Generating reliable, affordable and flexible energy across Africa

The African continent is home to the youngest and fastest-growing population in the world, accounting for half of the global population growth from now until 2050, as stated by the WEF. The concern raised is the ability of African nations to meet the resulting energy requirements as a result of [...]

Morocco’s NOOR Concentrated Solar Power Projects Support Africa’s Energy Transition

Morocco is playing an important role in Africa’s energy transition with the Noor Ouarzazate solar complex, according to a June 18 report by African Development Bank (AfDB) Group. The complex, southeast of Marrakech, is the largest concentrated solar power (CSP) plant in the world and its development benefited from $485 [...]

Could the Sahara Turn Africa into a Solar Superpower?

If all the sunshine hitting the Sahara was converted into energy, enough electricity would be produced to power Europe 7,000 times over. But solar panels reflect less heat back into space compared to sand, which could change the region’s climate – and make it rain more. You may have [...]

Egypt plans to establish $1.2bn concentrated solar power plants

Smart Engineering Solutions, in cooperation with the Ministry of Military Production, plans to launch concentrated solar power (CSP) plants and manufacture components of this system in Egypt with investments of $ 1.2bn. Osama Kamal, company's chairperson told Daily News Egypt that they started the selection process of solar thermal companies [...]

New trans-Africa Concentrated Solar Power, PV plan tests regional scaling skills

A 4.5 GW solar build plan proposed by multilaterals and governments in Botswana and Namibia will present significant scaling challenges, requiring clear political momentum and a ramped tendering and development process, regional experts told New Energy Update. In August, the World Economic Forum's Global Future Council on Energy unveiled a [...]

AfDB ‘s Solar Project Aims at Making Africa a Renewable Power House

When UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres launched the International Solar Alliance last October, he applauded the goal of mobilizing about $1 trillion dollars towards the deployment of some 1,000 gigawatts of solar energy by 2030. “It is clear,” he said, “that we are witnessing a global renewable energy revolution.” That [...]

Abengoa breaks records with Xina Solar One, its third concentrated solar power plant in South Africa

The concentrated solar power plant, owned by Abengoa, IDC, PIC and the Community Trust, has passed the guaranteed production tests in record time. With a capacity of 100 MW, the solar thermal plant provides clean and sustainable energy even in hours without solar radiation thanks to its molten salts storage [...]

Should we turn the Sahara Desert into a huge solar farm?

Whenever I visit the Sahara I am struck by how sunny and hot it is and how clear the sky can be. Aside from a few oases, there is little vegetation, and most of the world’s largest desert is covered with rocks, sand and sand dunes. The Saharan sun is [...]
