This work described the operational capabilities of a platform developed to assist decision makers to determine the optimal location and configuration of desalination plants to be powered by renewable energy sources. The platform, called DESiRES, operates under an open source geographical information system interface. Interoperability with geostatictical and optimization design algorithm modules was achieved via the location based information provided by the geographical module. The current stage of DESiRES platform development (i.e., study areas, data used, etc.) was presented along with the basic platform functionalities, showing a great potential for design and assessment of desalination in the Mediterranean region.
