SEPTEMBER 23RD, 2019, WORKSHOP “DESERT FUelS”, Köln, Germany

Uta Burghard from Fraunhofer ISI presented MUSTEC-results at the workshop "DesertFuels: Beiträge solarthermischer Kraftwerke zur Brennstoffversorgung der Zukunft" (Contributions of solar thermal power plants to the fuel supply of the future) in Cologne, Germany on the 23rd of September 2019. The presentation was focused on the socio-political acceptance of CSP and gave an overview on perspectives from European stakeholders on bilateral cooperation via joint projects. The main conclusions derived include that different narratives for CSP and cooperation mechanisms seem to emerge in society which could lead to diverging views. In the subsequent panel discussion, the import of renewable electricity and fuels from southern countries was discussed with various experts from science and industry.
