    The objective is to help Algeria in developing its solar potential, which is one of the most important in the world, by launching major projects in solar thermal.

    Activities: (2011 - 2030)
    Development of concentrating solar power (CSP) in Algeria to increase the share of solar energy. A total of 7200 MW CSP could be installed. The electricity generated is to supply domestic demand and the surplus will be exported.

    The programme would have three phases:

    • (2011-2013) Pilot project of two solar power plants with total capacity of 150 MW each. These are in addition to the hybrid power plant project of Hassi R'Mei with a total power capacity of 150 MW, which includes 25 MW from solar energy.
    • (2016-2021) Construction of 4 solar thermal power plants with a total capacity of approx. 1200 MW.
    • (2021-2030) Installation of 500MW annually until 2023 and 600MW annually until 2030.
