To tap the solar potential in the MENA region, concentrating solar power (CSP) plants must be reliable, efficient and cost-effective. In contrast to conventional fossil power plants, CSP plants have high investment costs and almost no fuel costs.
As a consequence, the total investment is made at the beginning of each project and a CSP project must be planned, constructed and operated correctly. The module ‘technology’ deals with the optimization of the CSP technology, the development of quality assurance techniques and the know-how transfer of these techniques to skilled personnel in the MENA region.
