Optimal Engineering Design for Dependable Water and Power Generation in Remote Areas Using Renewable Energies and Intelligent Automation
To combat water scarcity and desertification, intensive desalination activities have to be carried out in remote arid regions. Also, with regard to its geographical position, the MENA region is ideally placed to utilize solar energy. For remote arid areas, de-centralized solutions for energy and water co-production offer advantages over large central production sites. The main objective is to develop a co-generating water-electricity plant powered by renewable energy for remote arid areas with improved overall performance, dependability, reliability and availability to meet specific needs of these regions as well as cost requirements.
