Middle East and North Africa's Concentrated Solar Power Knowledge and Innovation Program

Middle East and North Africa’s Concentrated Solar Power Knowledge and Innovation Program

Castalia advised counties throughout the Middle East and North Africa on how Concentrated Solar Power Generation (CSP) can benefit their power systems.

However, policymakers in MENA lack awareness of CSP potential in their countries. Read more
