Renewable energy in Egipt

Egypt generated 12.9-billion kilowatt per hour from hydroelectricity, mostly from Aswan High Dam and the Aswan Reservoir Dams, but analysts believe much of the area’s hydropower potential has been exhausted. A solar-thermal power plant located in Kuraymat, 100 kilometers from Cairo, generates around 140 MW of solar-thermal energy, saving 5,000 tons of natural gas per […]

The European project CSP2 tests the new Concentrated Solar Power fluid

The global system will be analyzed and scale-up will be proposed toward industrial Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) facilities (10-50 MWe). The CSP2 project puts forward an alternative heat transfer fluid (HTF) for concentrating solar power (CSP) plants. We propose to use dense gas-particle suspensions -DPS- (approximately 50% of solid) in tubes as HTF; these tubes […]
