The energy agreement also recognizes the importance of developing advanced energy and water technologies to secure water and power supplies while protecting the environment and increasing energy efficiency within the two countries.
BrightSource Energy, Inc., a concentrating solar power technology (CSP) company announced advanced solar field technologies currently being deployed at the 121 megawatt (MW) Ashalim Solar Thermal Power Station located in Israel’s Negev Desert.
In PRO, water from a low-salinity feed solution permeates through a membrane into a pressurized, high-salinity draw solution. Power is obtained by depressurizing the draw through a hydro-turbine
During the first phase, Eco Wave Power will implement a 100KW power station on the Ammunition Jetty, and in the second phase the power plant will be expanded to a size of 5MW, which will provide up to 15% of Gibraltar’s electricity needs.
Ecoppia has inked a deal to retrofit a 40 MW PV solar site jointly owned by EDF RE and Arava Power with its autonomous and waterless robotic solar panel cleaning technology.
Selected projects address energy challenges and opportunities of interest to both countries, while focusing on commercializing clean energy technologies that improve economic competitiveness, create jobs, and support innovative companies.
