ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of Israel to issue a prequalifying tender for what will be one of the world's largest solar power projects, in an effort to increase the use of renewable energy in the next decade. This was due to the slow development of the country's use of the technology for electricity generation. Because of this, the national infrastructure and finance ministries have issued a tender to prequalify for a build-own-transfer project consisting of two 80-MW to 125-MW solar thermal power stations at Ashalim in the Negev desert.
