Reports on CSP Model Based Assessment

REPORT: SUSTAINABILITY ASSESSMENT OF FUTURE CSP COOPERATION PROJECTS IN EUROPE

This report assesses a series of potential impacts associated to the future deployment of CSP cooperation projects, such as socioeconomic, social and environmental impacts. These have not been accounted for in the modeling exercise but may become an obstacle or a driver for the successful deployment of such projects.

REPORT: MODEL-BASED ANALYSIS OF DRIVERS AND POLICY TRADE-OFFS FOR THE CSP MARKET UPTAKE IN EUROPE

This report informs on a model - based assessment of the future market uptake of CSP in Europe. The modelling works undertaken combined two core elements: a power system analysis, identifying the need for CSP in a decarbonised European electricity system of tomorrow, and an energy policy analysis to assess implications for and impacts of dedicated support policies for CSP and other renewables.

Report: Lessons from existing cooperation initiatives, competing technologies and concepts

The objective of this report is twofold. On one hand, to review the current cooperative initiatives that have been launched over the past years in the European Union, study their characteristics and achievements and outline the lessons learned. On the other hand, to assess competitive dispatchable RES technologies that could be utilised for achieving high RES penetration scenarios, especially if the long-term European decarbonisation strategy for 2050 is considered.
