  34. 34. RE Desalination Sources & Combination <br />Biomass<br />
  35. 35. RE : Power Oriented Technologies<br />(Electricity Production)<br />Power oriented RE technologies are based on three major resources: <br />Solar or wind based solutions are particularly suitable for desalination purposes, given the resource availability in most of the water stressed areas<br />Wave energy is available where sea water is available, which is needed for desalination. The technology is little developed but has a huge potential.<br />
  36. 36. RE : Heat Oriented Technologies<br />(Heat Production)<br />Heat oriented RE technologies are based on three major resources:<br />
  37. 37. What are The Limitations in Using RE?<br /><ul><li>Intermittent, difficult to predict and fluctuant.
  38. 38. Occupy large areas (cases of solar collectors, solar PV fields or wind farms)
  39. 39. Adverse impact on the environment:</li></ul>• Visual impacts,<br />• Affection to marine and aerial life<br />• Noise (Wind for example )<br />

  47. 47. Water reuse is not widely accepted, can play an important role
  48. 48. Desalination and water reuse technology responds to market needs
  49. 49. Factors constraining growth rate of desalination:</li></ul>Energy consumption can still be reduced<br />Environmental impacts are positive, new guidelines<br />Distribution infrastructures/rehabilitation foreseen<br />Cost is declining, can be further reduced<br /><ul><li>RE systems have proven to be reliable. They are the technologies of the future and will play a role in future scenarios. It has great potential in WANA
