Coordination and Support Action
The main objective of MUSTEC Project will be to assess existing barriers and drives for supplying firm electricity from southern European countries to central and northern European countries using concentrated solar power plant (CSP). Under the scope of promote and improve the cooperation mechanism among member state of the European Union, solutions are explored and proposed in order to overcome barriers and factors that are harming business development opportunities.
The project will be carried out in two time scales: present and future. To this end, the following aspects are considered: energy policies, electricity markets, socioeconomic impact as well as added value of concentrated solar power energy at economic and environmental level through case studies of operating plants and future promising configurations.
The major target of this project will be to fix guidelines for the development of new concentrated solar power projects that will be adapted to the requirements of electrical exchanges between different countries, in particular, those countries with a good solar resource and other with a low penetration of dispatchable renewable energy.
Project consortium will be made up of Centro De Investigaciones Energéticas, Medioambientales y Tecnológicas – CIEMAT, The University ff Piraeus Research Center, Eidgenoessische Echnische Hochschule Zürich, Technische Universitaet Wien, European Solar Thermal Electricity Association, Cobra Instalaciones y Servicios S.A., Fraunhofer Gesellschaft Zur Foerderung Der Angewandten Forschung E.V., Agencia Estatal Consejo Superior De Investigaciones Científicas y el Real Instituto Elcano.
