Report: The market environment for CSP projects in Europe

This report identifies the main market conditions for CSP in Europe. Germany and France were selected as EU countries that are potential major importers of CSP electricity. There, we look at seasonality of demand, development of import volumes and the degree of achievements for their RES targets to assess a potential need and business case for importing CSP. Spain and Italy were chosen as EU countries that are major potential exporters of CSP electricity. There, the energy mix and RES options in the country, the type of support that could be expected for CSP projects (also opportunities for cross-border support, which again links back to importing countries), and other specific characteristics were assessed to determine these countries’ qualification for export.
