With an average annual solar radiation of 2,000 kWh/m2 and a colossal industrial heat demand at medium temperatures, Tunisia has the essential ingredients needed to harness Concentrated Solar Heat (CSH) in industrial processes. In fact, the country’s industrial sector is the largest consumer of energy today, accounting for nearly 30% [...]
TuNur, a small company based in the UK, has applied to the Tunisian Government to begin construction of a 4.5GW concentrated solar power (CSP) project in the Sahara Desert. According to Power Technology, TuNur applied to the Tunisian Government to begin construction of a 4.5GW concentrated solar power (CSP) project [...]
NurEnergie just applied for the permit to build and export desert solar power to Europe from a gigantic 4.5 GW concentrated solar power (CSP) project with thermal energy storage at an expected price of 10 cents/kWh. NurEnergie’s TuNur project, located near Réjim Maâtoug in Tunisia, would phase in over three stages, [...]
TuNur Ltd filed a request in the Tunisian Ministry of Energy, Mines and Renewable Energy for the authorisation of a 4.5GW solar energy export project destined to fuel Europe. The mega-solar project is envisioned to be located in a newly established solar complex in the Sahara Desert in Southwest Tunisia- [...]
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.
