Development of social requirements for concentrated solar power (CSP) plants in the MENA region

Solar thermal power plants in North Africa have the potential to satisfy the growing demand for energy. But these innovations come at a price—for example, in the form of the redistribution of resources such as land and water. BICC is studying the potential for conflict and socio-economic consequences of solar thermal power plants in Morocco and Egypt in a research project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
