The present paper proposes a new design philosophy for renewable energy power plant planning. The philosophy relies on combining hybrid energy harvesting with computational fluid dynamics (CFD)-based optimization in order to produce a power plant that achieves the desired high power density harvesting at a low cost and with out resorting to complex construction technologies. The effectiveness of the proposed philosophy is demonstrated through preliminary planning calculations for a hybrid energy farm called WI-TI which we believe to be a step forward towards solving the Egyptian energy crisis.
