CPV’s Golden Opportunity in the MENA Region

No solar technology can claim to offer what concentrated photovoltaics (CPV) does, be it the superlative efficiencies in high-DNI regions, or zero-water usage in passively cooled systems. Just like concentrated solar power, CPV works best in regions with high Direct Normal Irradiance (DNI), especially with values above 2,000 kWh/m2. And just like standard flat-plate photovoltaics, CPV has the benefit of modularity, thus can be designed to meet...

The Calm before the Storm: Noor II and III

Morocco’s Noor II and III CSP plants are on the verge of being awarded. Ahead of the highly anticipated announcement, CSP Today speaks with MASEN and two of the prequalified bidders on the latest developments. Two years have passed since the request for qualifications was launched for the second phase of the Noor Solar Complex in Ouarzazate, which comprises Noor II, a 150-200 MW parabolic trough plant, and Noor III, a 100-150 MW central tower...

Green funding makes its way into the MENA region

Financing has historically proven to be one of the biggest obstacles for solar power developers, and even more so in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), where the lack of a track record of renewable projects poses a persisting challenge. But the picture is finally changing. Plummeting solar system prices, improvements in module efficiencies, and an industry-led movement to seek alternative means of raising capital, are together leading to...

Loans approved for 350 MW Morocco solar projects

The African Development Bank (ADB) has approved loans totaling nearly $250m for phase II of the Ouarzazate CSP solar complex project in Morocco. The loans, of €100 million (US$123 million) and $119 million, will be used to develop two new power stations with capacity totaling 350 MW. Total capacity for the Ouarzazate project will be around 500 MW. Funds for the two loans will come from the ADB’s own resources and the Clean Technology...

Morocco heats up with 16 new solar energy plants worth 25 gigawatts

You might meet snake charmers in the square of Marrakech and also storytellers who tell a good tale. But there is one thing always true about Morocco: the sun always shines. Foreign firms are eager to bank on Morocco’s attractive feed-in tariffs and catch some healthy profits from our sun. Solar energy companies like Martifer Solar (www.martifersolar.com) from Portugal already has business in the United Arab Emirates. It’s common for European...

SPE Paper Examines Economics of Steam Generation for Thermal Enhanced Oil Recovery

Abu Dhabi November 24, 2014 GlassPoint Solar, the leader in solar enhanced oil recovery (EOR), recently released a new Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) paper entitled, “Economics of Steam Generation for Thermal EOR.” The SPE paper examines the economics of generating steam for thermal EOR using three methods deployed at oilfields in the Gulf region. Findings show under what conditions solar steam generators deliver the lowest-cost...
