European Industrial Initiative on Concentrating Solar Power

Strategic objective: To demonstrate the competitiveness and readiness for mass deployment of advanced concentrating solar power (CSP) plants, through scaling-up of the most promising technologies to pre-commercial or commercial level.

Industrial sector objective:
To contribute around 3% of European electricity supply by 2020 with a potential of at least 10% by 2030 if the DESERTECThe concept of DESERTEC is a massive deployment of solar technology, mainly CSP, in MENA countries and the export of electricity to Europe. (MENA = Middle East, and North Africa) vision is achieved
