The Paris Summit for the Mediterranean

The Paris Summit for the Mediterranean in July of last year established the Mediterranean Solar Plan — a scheme to fuse European technical expertise with the abundance of empty, sun-drenched deserts in North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. By 2020, the plan says, 20 gigawatts (GW) of new renewable energy sources should be realized every year. Between 10 and 12GW of that would be provided through concentrated solar power (CSP).

//personal notes : it seems momentum is building up, we could move decisively to seize the opportunity, all things considered we would even be able to completely move to renewable energy for our electricity supply within less than 20 years. The beneficial effect to our economy would be even much stronger compared with exporting power to Europe.
