Here the conditions for land based Energy Towers of a specific design are given as annual average load. The calculations are made using data of the ECMWF and including program code developed by Vadim Mezhibovski (Technion, Haifa, Israel).
The conditions on land are strongly influenced by the transportation and elevation losses for delivering the water to the chimney‘s foot.The best locations are found at the cost lines of the desert belts, where e.g. Passat Winds provide sufficient dry and hot air, the distance to the water sources are short and elevation to the towers base is low. From a European point of view the areas in the western Sahara and in the Persian Gulf are most interesting.
