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:
