This report has been arranged by the TECH4DCM (2008-2009) project which is financed by FP6 (European Union Sixth Framework Programme). This EU Project focuses on promoting solar thermal energy and is being carried out in five countries: Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico and Peru. The projectâs primary goal is the promotion of renewable and efficient energy technologies, paying special attention to overcoming technological barriers.
