From November 7th, 2016, the 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP22) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change is taking place in Morocco, and once again the world’s attention will focus on the challenges of climate change and the initiatives being taken to respond to those challenges. In Morocco, a country renowned for taking a leading role with solar power, here is a look at one of the projects that Solar Frontier is involved with in the region.

In partnership with Chaire UNESCO SIMEV (http://www.simev.org), the University Ibn Tofail in Kenitra, Morocco installed a water treatment system to produce clean drinking water for local residents and 1200 students in a high school. The water treatment system was completed in May 2014 and was installed by French water treatment company Firmus France, in partnership with German energy storage development company Belectric, and was designed to be fully self-sustaining and powered by renewable energy sources such as solar power and wind power. Belectric selected Solar Frontier’s solar panels for the project as the “CIS thin-film solar panel technology provides optimum performance even with clogging by sand and the high temperatures of the desert. The product helps to serve a vital cause: the supply of drinking water,” said Christophe Lacouche, project manager at Belectric.

Solar Frontier’s advanced CIS modules are a proven technology and generate higher energy yield (kilowatt-hours per kilowatt peak) in real-world environments than conventional crystalline silicon technologies. The modules are manufactured in state-of-the-art facilities, fully automated for manufacturing precision and consistently deliver high quality product.
