God bless you man

Giant investments in North Africa!

North Africa: Proposed 50 Billion Pounds Solar Project to Power Europe.

16 March 2009


link picture: http://www.desertec.org/en/news/

Solar farms in the Sahara could provide the whole of Europe's energy needs, according to scientists at the European Commission's Institute for Energy.

In what could be a 50 billion pounds multiple government investment over the next ten years, these solar farms could produce electricity either through photovoltaic cells or by turning water to steam by focusing the sun's rays with mirrors.

The investment would also make the Sahara attractive for private investors in coming years.

With a solar farm the size of Ireland, Europe could receive 20% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020. The Institute's scientists envision that 100GW could be generated by 2050, which is more than the combined electricity output from all sources in the UK.

Trials of concentrated solar power for sources of European electricity will be planned for Egypt, Morocco, Algeria and Dubai, with alternatives in Libya and Tunisia.

Solar farms in North Africa would make fossils fuels less relevant, as well as make Europe less dependent on Russia and the Middle East for energy.

i agree with your analysis to some extend but if you look at spain which is supposed to have evolved so much in comparison to what spain use to be in early 80 and 70s 60s despite of the huge subsidies spain has been relying on for the last 30 years from the EU, spanish people are still very poor in comparison to the western EU STANDARDS where unemployement is extremly high and local spaniards still wait for the foreign tourist to serve him/her in order to earn some money and be able to survive what i m trying to say despite of the modernity spain has achieved which it did not have 20 or 30 years ago, spain is still relying massively on tourism and the tips of tourists SAD BUT TRUE and i hope morocco does not go in the same foot steps cause not only you have achieved so little in terms of peoples wealth but your massive tourisme influx has harmed badely your ecology and has put a huge strain on the water which you have a huge shoratge of, concidering the spainsh land is quite arid and dry even worst the last ten years due to lack of rain.

But don't you think that Moroccans also deserve a live without poverty? I am very happy with these projects, and I am not worried that Morocco will lose its spirit.
By the way, you are from Spain, were in Morocco do you live and what do you do for a living? (Asking because I am preparing to go back to Morocco)

The Desertec project aims to build solar power plants in several locations in north Africa. Jeworrek said the "most important criteria" was that the locations were "situated in politically stable lands". Morocco, as well as Libya and Algeria have been cited as potential sites, where land is also cheap.

Don't understand this mega-solar project!!!
The future is localized energy production, not to ocuppy vast areas in mega-construction!!!
The same thing over and over, a handful of companies want to gain control of the energy supplies...

MOROCCO IS BEAUTIFUL

Hola everybody! I just joined the forums and I am amazed by its fantastic and huge content. I am planning to retire in Morocco (maybe Tangiers) and while doing a search on Google I was so lucky to find this thread and site.
It seems that Slaoui, CasaMor and Karim Aboussir didn´t understand Slavic Warrior when he wrote: " I'm not a big fan. It's Morocco, it shouldn't try to be something it's not." My English is not the best thing I can offer but I am sure Slavic Warrior was not meaning Morocco when he wrote that he is not a big fan but referring only to the urban projects. El Divino Porquerizo (love that nick ) in his message explained it very well and I totally agree with his text. I think I am maybe too nostalgic of the Spain I lived when I was young but I still love my country even if sometimes I just can´t stand so many things and behaviours.
Thank you so much Slaoui for all your hard work on the forums with so many good contributions and of course my gratitude goes also to the rest of the members that keep this site so interesting and growing.

EQUAL CHANCES TO ALL, IT IS TIME TO JOIN HANDS!!!

Thank you Tetwani for your welcome! ¿PAZ Y AMOR? It seems that we are both very much concerned about peace. Yes, peace is love but sadly peace in this modern world seems to be impossible and far from reality and unfortunately it seems almost impossible that one day the world will have complete harmony and peace with all the Humanity living with tranquility. Growing tensions between developped and developping countries, no solution for old problems, widening gap between RICH & POOR and increasing number of people living BELOW poverty lines are very SERIOUS problems, which I think are the main threats to global peace but ironically there is no conflict in the World, which cannot be solved Peace should be the main concern of every sensible man! I am all for it and I am sure almost ALL the people around the globe share the same feeling

Located on a 10-hectare site outside of the country’s most famous city, the new Morocco Mall will be accessible from five entry points along a major thoroughfare in suburban Casablanca. With panoramic views from five sets of lifts, twelve escalators and four travellators, the 200,000-square metre building will be a vaulted sky dome of shops, piazzas and open spaces. The mall’s biggest attraction is an IMAX movie theatre and 3-D spa, but will also attract tourists from far and wide thanks to an aquapark, kids parks, an organic garden, a skating rink and an art space dedicated to Moroccan handicrafts. In addition to 200 shops with over 70,000 square metres of GLA, the shopping centre includes a hypermarket, a food court with a sea view and approximately forty restaurants. D.I. was responsible for all conceptual, schematic and detailed design including tender documents and construction review.
