Résumé : 

The CoSoTIA (Concentrated Solar Technologies for Industrial Applications)project initiated by the CRTI center in collaboration with the URMPEunit concerns the study and development of CSP solar concentrators for industrialapplications. In the present work, we present decision support tools for thechoice of a solar concentration technology for sites in Algeria. They will be usedfor the comparison between different technologies of solar concentration e.g.:cylindro-parabolic, parabolic, solar tower, etc. The models used include projectcosts and site characteristics; they incorporate also engineering knowledge (economic,social, technical and environmental). The information needed for decisionmakingproduced by these tools is: the total cost of the project, indicators witheconomic, social, technical and environmental aspects. The case studies presentedwere conducted under the SAM Advisor environment, which was developed toevaluate the capacities to implement CSP project in order to produce expertisefor the different actors through an application on a given site (by the client). Fourcase sites in Algeria and for two types of solar concentrator plant are studied andpresented. A comparative study was conducted and for each site the best CSP wasdeduced and commented.
