Moroccan Solar Plant Will Bring Energy To A Million People

by Cop22 Marrakech

The world's largest solar energy plant will open soon in the Moroccan city of Ouarzazate. It's expected to bring renewable energy to one million locals for 20 hours a day.

Built on the vast desert plains of the Sahara, the plant will have unfettered access to sunlight during the day, and the resulting heat will be used to melt large amounts of salt.

That mechanism will allow the system to retain heat energy to power a steam turbine at night, giving the locals access to almost-round-the-clock renewable energy.

"Whether you are an engineer or not, any passer-by is simply stunned by it," Paddy Padmanathan from Saudi-owned ACWA Power responsible for the solar thermal project told Roger Harrabin at BBC News.

"You have 35 soccer fields of huge parabolic mirrors pointed to the sky which are movable so they will track the sun throughout the day," Padmanthan added.
