Abstract

Salinity-gradient solar pond (SGSP) energy production is one of the proven solar energy technologies in terms of electricity generation, water desalination, medium grade industrial heat production, and hydrometallurgy. A methodology has been developed to provide a rational basis for the selection of new SGSP sites. This methodology has been applied to over 100 sites in West Texas and eastern New Mexico where distance to potential energy user is of great importance, aside from site distance to nuclear waste storage facilities where salt is a waste product.
