SOLAR PONDS - The Sites Under Investigation

The effectiveness of a Solar Pond depends on its geographical location and is influenced by many factors among which are the climate, the geological and thermo-physical characteristics of the site. Additionally, and for its performance to be cost-effective, the pond should meet some minimum criteria for socio-economy as well as demography. Of equal importance is the availability of a qualified human element, appropriately skilled and trained to manage and maintain such bodies of water. Based on the above, it becomes evident that accurate positioning of a solar pond has to be performed with extreme care in order to reap the maximum benefit from the installation
