Working Group 2: Medium Temperature

This working group took off in 2014 with the goal of promoting the Solar Thermal / Concentrating Solar medium range temperature development. Thus, this working group moves beyond the Solar Thermal Electricity / Concentrating Solar Power applications which are still at development stage, however STE / CSP is already in a much stronger market position than Medium Range Temperature applications.

Nowadays the members of this working group represent industry firms, R&D entities, public institutions, Universities. Every 3 months there are meetings gathering member in order to work on the following targets:

Fostering a promising new market with huge potential development. So that, this will hopefully lead to companies creation and job growth

Helping towards financing program calls, work on the internationalization of this sector and foster the R&D towards new markets

Working Group 1: Concentrating Solar Technology

This working group has been recently launched in 2017. The main goal is to find out synergies among members in order to add value to the STE / CSP Industry.
These are the working group targets:
– Being up to date regarding STE / CSP industry. Sharing updated STE Plants production data at world level and sharing STE / CSP country development programs.
– Sharing EU STE / CSP projects, either new calls of interest or current stage of development of R&D programs.
– Discussing the development guidelines for the future focusing on reducing the cost of STE / CSP Plants.
– SOLAR CONCENTRA aims to be a useful tool and dissemination place for sharing entities capabilities linked to STE / CSP industry.
– Teleconferencing will be available for working group meetings.
– Every working group meeting will start with the proposed agenda, and shall finish with the next meeting agenda already defined.
