Innovative components and/or sub-systems for CSP plants and/or concentrating solar thermal installations

Support will be given to the demonstration of innovative, cost effective and more reliable components and/or sub-systems for CSP plants and/or concentrating solar thermal installations. The components and/or sub-systems will allow better efficiency in terms of solar energy conversion.

The demonstration should span a continuous interval of at least six months covering all possible incidence angles of the direct solar radiation.

Projects are expected to assess the sustainability of the proposed components and/or sub-systems in environmental, social and economic terms.

All demonstrators should be fully and transparently documented, to ensure replicability, up-scaling and to assist future planning decisions.
