La centrale de pompage thermo-solaire de Diré au Mali (années 1970-1980) : Éléments pour une évaluation sociotechnique

Abstract : The purpose of this contribution is to pro- vide empirical and theoretical elements for a renewed assessment of the socio-technical and historical interest of the Diré solar power plant which began operating in Mali in 1979. This case study, conducted from the use of archives and testimonies, proposes to decons- truct “the Diré technical object” to demons- trate that its elements successfully transposed the social objectives of the device into its mechanisms. Then, the solar machine is placed in the historical context of the cooperation project of its sponsors (French and Malian states) not to mix “the prototype” with the “operation” while capturing their interac- tions. Finally, we question the nature of the variables to be summoned for the evaluation of the solar object: social variables versus technical-economic elements?
