Priority 2 - Theme 2.3 Solar Energy
Starting Date: November 17, 2012
Duration: 36 months
Total budget : € 4,953,512
The STS-Med project focuses on the development, implementation and diffusion of new technologies to improve energy efficiency in public buildings. The project will implement four demonstration plants based on solar concentration (SC) to serve the energy needs of 20,000 users from 20 local Mediterranean communities, with a total capacity of 400 kW. More than 1,000 professionals and experts in the energy sector will be updated about SC through advanced technical training sessions. In addition, 200 public buildings managers and owners will be invited to visit the demonstration plants. The implementation will be supported by studies on the economic impact and political strategies, including recommendations on regulatory issues, tax incentives and aspects related to innovative public procurement. The project also aims to create new business opportunities, in particular by supporting the involvement of small and medium-sized enterprises in supply chains for local production of solar energy generated by the construction of the 4 pilot plants.
The STS-Med project partnership consists of 14 organizations from 6 countries: Italy, France, Cyprus, Egypt, Greece, Jordan bringing together a wide range of technical, institutional and managerial skills.
The total budget of the project is € 4,953,512, € 4,458,161 of which funded by the ENPI CBCMED Programme (90% of the total).
