Solar power in Yemen

Solar insolation in Yemen

Solar power in Yemen includes a 3 kW solar power plant with batteries being developed in Aden.[1]

A company started by students developed solar fans and lamps which can provide light for 6 to 12 hours.[2]

A desalination project has been proposed to provide fresh water to Sana'a. A concentrated solar power plant would produce 10,000 GWh/year, and about one third would be used to provide desalination, and the remainder would be used for pumping. The working fluid would be sea water.[3]
