SOLATERM is an EU funded project that brings research institutions, energy agencies, authorities and enterprises from EU and the Southern Mediterranean partners closer together. The project consortium with partners from 8 Southern Mediterranean and 5 EU countries has the aim to promote the application of a new generation of solar thermal systems in the Mediterranean partner countries.

SOLATERM combines the technological know-how of EU research institutions with the specific experiences and knowledge of the Southern Mediterranean partners. The EU partners provide important experiences in developing a successful political framework to boost the use of renewable energy.

The Mediterranean Partner Countries of the European Union are confronted with a rapidly increasing energy demand caused by a growing population in the cities and increasing living standards. At the same time the region has a great potential for the use of renewable energies notably solar energy due to its high level of solar radiation.

Nevertheless only a small variety of solar thermal technologies is used in the region. The state of technology and the political support mechanisms vary strongly across the region and in relation to the EU countries where new solar thermal applications for water and space heating as well as cooling are developed.
