The Desertec Project is a high profile European solar energy initiative with a goal of generating up to 15 per cent of Europe's electricity through giant solar thermal power plants located in the North African desert.
Founded in 2009, the project is being driven by a coalition of German blue chip firms who have committed to assessing the cost effectiveness and technical feasibility of the plan with a view to drawing up a detailed investment proposal for the project by 2012.
