Small scale thermal solar district units for Mediterranean communities

Objectives

The STS MED project aims to promote and implement innovative technologies and know-how transfer in the field of solar energy including that stemming from the private sector and especially from SMEs, and that may be implemented in particular in public facilities through public procurement processes.

The specific objectives of this project are:

  • to facilitate the adoption of CS small scale integrated systems in the Mediterranean basin, with a focus on the deployment of a flexible toolbox of CS applications by demonstrating their effectiveness in public building and premises;
  • to deploy technologies from RTD results through case studies analysis and impact assessment and the creation of demonstration units;
  • to create new opportunities for the commercial and industrial sectors, notably by improving the technical skills of professionals involved and enabling SMEs to set up a full supply chain in the solar energy sector.
