4 Italgen - Italcementi Group 4 CSP plants consist of two main parts: ▶ one that concentrate (focus) the sunlight using mirrors and convert it into high-temperature heat and ▶ another that converts the heat energy into electricity. All CSP technological approaches require large areas for solar radiation collection. Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) plants generate electricity utilizing the solar energy Source: Technology Roadmap CSP IEA 2010

5 Italgen - Italcementi Group Concentrating solar technologies exist in four common forms Source: Energy Week - MIP - F. Frattini Parabolic troughs Linear parabolic concentrators where sunlight is concentrated onto a receiver placed in the trough’s focal line. Parabolic dishes Concentrate the sunlight on a receiver placed in the focal point above the centre of the dish. Solar towers Use thousands of small reflectors to concentrate the sunlight on a central receiver placed at the top of a fixed tower. Fresnel reflectors Parallel rows of mirrors flat or slightly curved to reflect the sun’s rays onto a downward facing linear receiver. 5

9 Italgen - Italcementi Group  Among ITC Group available sites, we have identified Ait Baha (Morocco) as the best opportunity in terms of land availability, solar irradiation and already existing infrastructures.  The pilot plant consists of 3 solar modules and a new heat exchanger integrated in the existing cogeneration system. 9 First, we identified the most suitable location and dimensioned the plant… ▶ 2.5 hectares of occupied land ▶ 3 solar modules (216 x 11 meters) ▶ 6,055 m 2 of total reflecting surface (less than a football field) ▶ 6,400 MWh of net thermal production ▶ 1,000 MWh of gross electric production ▶ Less than 1 m 3 /day of water consumption (300 m 3 /year) Project Main Data Project Main Data ▶ Land optimization (MWh/m 2 ) ▶ Maintenance (€/MWh) ▶ Efficiency (%) ▶ Dispatchability level (heq/y) ▶ Production (MWh/y) ▶ Water Consumption (m 3 /y) K.P.I.

10 Italgen - Italcementi Group The heat captured through the solar modules will be added to the one recovered by the thermal oil circulating in close contact with the waste heat of the kiln hot gases. Existing Cogeneration System New CSP plant 10
