Can You See the Tiny Dots On the Map?
A small modular solar thermal plant such as this might produce roughly 25 MW of electrical power. If you could also utilise the waste heat from the plant, your total energy production including useful heat would at least double.
A large power grid spanning huge distances of North Africa, the Arabian peninsula, and parts of Europe, would allow the abundant solar resource of the Sahara to be exploited by wealthier and more productive Europeans to the north.H/T Treehugger (from Spiegel) via Peswiki
