Jordan is reportedly considering CSP projects in Aqaba and southeastern regions, according to a report by jordantimes.com.
The report mentioned that according to the National Energy Research Centre, the terrain of Wadi Rum would be best suited to apply the technology, using the cliffs to angle mirrors down to a plant at the surface level.
Even as Jordan is contemplating whether to take a plunge or not at this stage, the significance of solar-thermal power generation in the Middle East and North Africa is already growing considering the current activity in Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Some power plant projects or public tenders have already been undertaken in these countries.
The pertinently timed CSP, CPV & Thin Film Solar Technologies MENA - Abu Dhabi, June 2-3, will tackle the issues in this region and with international cooperation from CSP companies, looks set to be an exceptional two day event in Abu Dhabi.
