Promoter – Financial Intermediary
MOROCCAN AGENCY FOR SUSTAINABLE ENERGY
This project, concerning the Midelt Solar Complex, located near the city of Midelt, will finance the construction and operation of two hybrid photovoltaic/concentrated solar power (PV-CSP)plants with storage of ca. 500 MW each (total gross capacity of up to ca. 1000 MW). After the Ouarzazate complex, this is the second programme launched by MASEN under the NOOR Plan. Additionally, it is the first one using both PV and CSP technologies.
The PV-CSP hybrid solution will optimise the operating parameters of the plants, by enabling the electricity supply after sunset while providing a low-cost solution for daytime generation.
