STS-Med focuses on the development, implementation and diffusion of pioneering solar technologies to improve energy efficiency in public buildings. The project is deploying 4 demonstrative plants based on concentrating solar collectors for a total power of about 500 kW as a showcase for 20.000 end users and 20 Mediterranean local communities.
More than one thousand of energy professionals and public buildings owners/managers are getting in touch with advanced CS systems through technical training sessions and visit at the demonstrative plants under construction. Implementation is supported by economic and policy studies, including recommendations on regulatory issues, fiscal incentives and public innovative procurement.
In consideration of the relevant solar resource available in the partner regions, the project intends to create new business opportunities, notably by supporting the involvement of SMEs in the innovative supply chains generated by the construction of the 4 pilot plants. STS-Med is carried out by 14 organisations from Cyprus, Egypt, France, Greece, Italy and Jordan which bring together a wide range of technical, institutional and business expertise.
