Report: Socio-political acceptance findings

This report focuses on the socio-political acceptance of the implementation of cooperation projects of the RES Directive to supply electricity from Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plants in the South of Europe to Central and Northern Europe, aiming to provide a comprehensive picture of the views of the different stakeholders on cooperation mechanisms for CSP.  The main finding across countries and stakeholders is that despite the perception of strong benefits from joint projects for CSP by the stakeholders, an impetus from society or important actors in the innovation system is missing to drive the development of these projects. Limited interest and a lack of recent discussions is perceived for many groups, such as policy makers, societal actors, and to some extent the relevant industry itself. Read more on this report here.
