Final Report - POWERSOL (Mechanical power generation based on solar Thermodynamic Engines)

Project ID: 32344
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

The POWERSOL project, funded under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), aimed to develop an optimised, environmentally friendly technology, relying on solar energy, to address basic needs of rural and small communities. The proposal was of improved cost compared to alternatives and could be exploited for mechanical power production, electricity generation or desalination purposes.

This final activity report summarises the project objectives and assesses the acquired progress. The produced documentation is also presented. Moreover, the report pinpoints the advantages of the proposal compared to existing desalination alternatives. Finally, the principal project results are analysed, with the aid of pictures, charts and explanatory diagrams.
