- The macro model identifies optimal pathways and sizing of infrastructure to allocate freshwater from different potential locations suitable for seawater desalination at the Mediterranean and the Red Sea to demand areas in Palestine and Jordan.
- The macro model is formulated as a non-linear optimization problem where the objective function minimizes the combined cost of seawater desalination, infrastructure and energy.
- Energy is the key component of the combined cost and its minimization leads to the most cost-effective solutions.
