The first phase of the project which was formally launched in the fall of 2008, will last 16 months.
The Cyprus Institute (CyI) has been awarded a European Research Area (ERA) Chair grant of €2.5 million in the field of Solar Thermal Energy (STE).
The aim of this collaboration is to investigate solar energy issues and better ways of integrating concentrated solar power to the network.
The whole Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) project is estimated to cost €175 million, €60m of which comes from the grant given to the company by the European Investment Bank.
Developer Alfa Mediterranean Enterprises is to install around 300 solar thermal receivers and hundreds of sun-tracking mirrors north of Limassol in Cyprus.
