CSP ERANET is the result of a joint EU will for bridging the gap between research and commercial deployment in the Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) technology, so this technology can play a main role in the European renewable electricity generation in a medium term.
CSP ERANET aims to coordinate the efforts of Member States, Associated Countries and Regions towards achieving CSP SET Plan objectives, by pooling their financial resources to implement joint calls for R&I proposals, resulting on strategic projects with substantial volumes of investment, which cannot be allocated by individual countries or by the European Commission on their own.
IEA Special Report on Clean Energy Innovation highlights the need for countries to work together to accelerate technology progress
Today the International Energy Agency (IEA) is sending a clear message to governments and companies around the world that clean energy innovation needs to accelerate to meet net-zero emissions goal
Industry Shares its Experience to Advance Next Generation CSP
Engineers generally tend to be solutions-oriented, and engineers in Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) are no different.
Concentrated Solar Power builders modify tower storage to combat heat swings
Global learnings on the impact of ‘transient’ risks on Concentrated Solar Power tower systems are driving improved storage tank piping and all-welding techniques, experts told New Energy Update.
CSP-ERANET Joint Call topics are based on priorities identified in the Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan resp. in the subsequent Implementation Plans for PV and CSP (available on the website CSP-ERANET). They include strategic targets that shall serve as reference for this call and proposals to be submitted.
