Solamon addresses Water Desalinization issues; set to integrate solar-powered systems

Kingston (I-Newswire) February 22, 2014 - In the longer-term, the combination of solar energy with desalination in North Africa could become particularly interesting for Solamon and our partners, explains Jay Yeo from Budapest, Hungary, where he and his staff continue to meet with leaders from across the Maghreb, exploring numerous opportunities and applicable solutions. Desalination accounted for about 0.3% of global electricity demand in 2005 and accounted for 5% of the world desalination capacity (around 500 million m3 per year) was in North Africa and is estimated at 20-fold growth by 2030.

"With current trends of rapidly growing populations and continuing pressure on water resources, desalination needs will increase very rapidly in North Africa," Yeo adds. "The electricity needed to meet the need for desalination in 2030 would be in the order of 70 TWh. Both PV and CSP can be used for desalination; thermal and osmosis processes, respectively. Desalination is an ideal use of renewables, because intermittency is not a problem due to the fact that water can be stored easily and relatively cheaply."

Despite a lack of stability in certain areas today, Solamon is offering to manage the implementation of autonomous desalination systems using renewable energies, especially in areas with lack of fresh water that are isolated from the electrical grid. These days, the geographical areas of Sub-Saharan Africa, South America and even the Middle East can be considered as ideal locations for the installation of this kind of simple and effective system. "On the one hand," Yeo concludes, "they each have significant solar resources and on the other they have the least availability of per capita drinking water in the world."

Solamon Energy typically offers a ground-mounted solar array of integrated cells over a package of land called the Apollo Acre™. The company also develops custom solutions with local partners to provide roof-mounted and parking lot systems that are easily augmented by micro wind turbine technology and other innovative features to supply renewable energy locally.
About Solamon: Solamon Energy Corp. sells integrated arrays of ground-mounted and rooftop photovoltaic cells. These solar power plants are connected by cable to varied transmission equipment, including converters, inverters and batteries, utilizing 5 acres of land per unit; each unit is called an Apollo Acre™. Additionally, it is expected the company's business activities will spin-off many jobs locally, given engineering requirements, construction, unit commissioning and subsequent maintenance.
