Desertec Foundation endorses King Saud University Point Focus Fresnel Collector

Researchers at King Saud University (KSU) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) have developed, engineered, and built an innovative and low-cost system of concentrating solar collectors that is currently being tested at the KSU campus in Riyadh prior to commercialisation.

Their Point Focus Fresnel Collector (PFFC) technology has a strong potential to provide a highly efficient and cost-effective solution for a wide range of applications. It addresses specific needs in the region such as carbon free power generation, as well as power for water desalination, process heat, district cooling and oil-saving air-condit
