Following the the contribution from ESTELA (European Solar Thermal Electricity Association) to the European Commissionâs Strategic Energy Technology Plan, ESTELA has also issued its proposal for the Mediterranean Solar Plan (MSP). One of the main goals of the MSP is to contribute to the creation of a Euro-Mediterranean regional renewable electricity market. In addition, the MSP will also help the economic development of Southern Mediterranean countries by creating a new source of revenue.
ESTELA has developed a cost estimation of the plan taking into account as the main goal to reach by 2020 an amount of 20,000 MW installed power in the desert areas. Especially in the beginning of the project, it is anticipated that public support would be needed.
