Originally published on EdenKeeper.org With the first phase deadline set for 2019, Morocco has launched an ambitious “Energy Efficiency in Mosques” program aiming to provide solar power for all the mosques in the kingdom. By switching to energy-saving LED lighting, solar water heating, and rooftop solar PV electricity generation, significant savings are anticipated for the […]
In notable solar news, Portugal has authorized the processing of licenses for solar projects which total more than 2,000 megawatts (2 gigawatts) of potential power.

Among various solar energy technologies, one is referred to as concentrated solar power, or concentrating solar power. The acronym CSP applies to either. Worldwide CSP systems generate solar power by using mirrors or lenses to concentrate a large area of sunlight, or solar thermal energy, onto a small area. The concentrated heat is used to eventually spin a […]
OK, so, technically, I think the project (DESERTEC) is budgeted at about $555 billion, but who’s counting? This is a humongous clean energy project for North Africa, the Middle East, and Europe that is projected to provide Europe with about 15% of its electricity demand by 2050 and will help power North Africa and the […]
