HYMENSO aims to support
the implementation of solar energy systems in the MENA region by following a
holistic approach covering aspects of cost, reliability and dispatchability. A
combination of PV (Photovoltaics) and CSP (Concentrating Solar Power) systems
is investigated, in order to harvest the advantages of both systems.
• Create a data base of
relevant local conditions for CSP and PV plants, such as meteorological data,
industry capacity, energy demand, current energy production, and grid capacity
of the participating MENA countries.
• Develop country specific
solar energy roadmaps and concepts for combination of PV and CSP.
• Enhance local
participation through capacity building and dissemination of results.
• Produce specifications
of hybrid systems, to be applied on future prototypes and demonstrators to be
developed in the continuity of this project.
• Demonstrate available
subsystems in pilot applications.
