This case study from 2004 was prepared by the OECD and IEA secretariats and reviews past and current experiences in international collaboration in the field of CSP technologies. In addition to identifying the success stories and the failures of CSP related international collaboration, the case study also lists four important lessons:
1) International collaboration may help, but domestic policy decisions remain decisive
2) In technology transfer non-financial barriers must not be underestimated
3) Developing new technologies in developing countries only may not work
4) Sharing the necessary â€œlearning investmentsâ€ might be a good idea.
