“MUSTEC” (Market Uptake of Solar Thermal Electricity through Cooperation) aims at supporting the expansion and trade of CSP in Europe by:

  1. identifying the barriers holding CSP back and limiting its expansion in Europe, in the context of the energy and climate targets of 2030 and beyond,
  2. finding the drivers for CSP and the potential niches in which intra-European CSP trade can play an important role for the decarbonisation, stabilisation and integration of the European power system, and
  3. proposing concrete policy solutions to overcome the identified obstacles and create the necessary enabling conditions for European CSP growth
