    Abstract: The Sahel region of Burkina, whose capital is Dori, is one of the regions of the country whose electricity coverage rate is very low, which happens to be a paradox because it has enormous solar deposits which are sources of energies. This is the essence of our study of a 50MW cylindrical-parabolic concentrator solar power plant in Dori. It should b... Show More

    Abstract: The shortage of drinking water source limits the socio-economic development of many areas of the world. Saudi Arabia is one of the poor countries in fresh water source and around 40 to 50% of portable water is produced by desalination technology that depends on using oil and natural gas. The high cost of the water and electricity production reflect... Show More
