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...

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...

Oman urged to use solar for water desal projects

Oman should give greater consideration to using solar power for future water desalination projects, a report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) in collaboration with Oman’s Public Authority for Electricity and Water (PAEW) has suggested. According to the report, solar energy has become an attractive option for water desalination following a steep drop in the cost of photo-voltaic (PV) based systems for electricity generation...
