Last April I was assigned to photograph the building of a large solar-concentration power plant commissioned by Italcementi in the Maroccan desert, about an hour drive from Agadir.
The site uses a quite spectacular technology by mounting very large-sized mirrors on top of concrete structures that follow the movements of the sun. The light rays then converge towards the center of the mirror where an air pipe runs. For now the project is considered in the research and development phase but the final use – rather than completely replace non-clean energy – is to fill in for the fluctuating costs of energy itself.
Below the published article with the original images and an outtake.
