Energie uit de Sahara

De laatste jaren is het Desertec-scenario sterk in de belangstelling gekomen. Het gaat hierbij om export van verschillende soorten duurzame energiebronnen vanuit onder meer Noord-Afrika of het Midden Oosten. CSP-installaties (concentrated solar power) spelen hierbij een belangrijke rol, maar het plan voorziet ook in de toepassing van windturbines, pv-centrales, aardwarmte-installaties en waterkracht. Leden van de […]
