Report: Potential Obstacles for the Use of Cooperation Mechanisms for CSP in the Future

This report provides an integrated analytical framework to identify the drivers and barriers to the use of cooperation mechanisms for CSP deployment, empirically identifies those drivers and barriers and ranks them according to the views of different types of stakeholders. Our findings demonstrate the most significant barriers to be the higher costs of CSP compared to other renewables (on an LCOE basis), heterogeneous regulated energy prices and support schemes, resistance to lose sovereignty over energy market and existing interconnections capacities. On the other hand, the most relevant drivers to the use of the cooperation mechanisms for CSP in the future include the dispatchable nature of CSP, new domestic jobs and industrial opportunities, complementarity with PV and policy ambition (renewable energy targets). Read more on this report here.
