A unique chance for the solar thermal industry in Poland: “Developing a renewable energies industry” is one of the many targets of the comprehensive “Infrastructure and Environment” programme for Poland (2007 to 2014).
This paper was presented at the 2008 International Renewable Energy Storage Conference which took place in Berlin, Germany. In 2003/2004, the German government funded a project undertaken by the German Aerospace Center to test a concrete storage module on the Plataforma Solar de Almeria in Spain.
A follow up project developed by Ed. Züblin AG concentrated on cost reduction, storage capacity and thermal conductivity. The design, construction and test results of the concrete storage test module are presented in this paper.

This paper reports the developments of four projects financed by the UN Global Environment Facility (GEF) in India, Morocco, Mexico and Egypt. The GEF chose those countries to develop solar thermal power technology as it has shown to be one of the most cost efficient options for renewable bulk power production, besides being the most cost-effective way of producing electricity from solar radiation.
