    Munich - 12 companies today signed a Memorandum of Understanding in Munich to establish a DESERTEC Industrial Initiative (DII). The objective of this initiative is to analyse and develop the technical, economic, political, social and ecological framework for carbon-free power generation in the deserts of North Africa. The DESERTEC concept, developed by the TREC Initiative of the Club of Rome, describes the perspectives of a sustainable power supply for all regions of the world with access to the energy potential of deserts.

    Stromaufwärts - Energiekongress 2008 is taking place in Berlin the 7th and 8th of November 2008.

    kernenergien is taking part in the programme schedule of the congress. Jürgen Kern will lead the forum Renewable Energies -Visions with a speach about solar market and Africa-electricity.

    Renewable energies already cover14,3 percent of electricity production and the tendency is up going. Renewable energies are more successful than electricity groups ever imagined.

    What else can we reach with renewable energies?

    The displays will be supported by a series of lectures, to be held on 23 and 24 April. The lectures are organized by Deutsche Messe in association with the Club of Rome, the Jülich Solar Institute and the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and will feature in-depth discussion on both the technical and political prerequisites for successful solar thermal energy projects.

    In regions with high levels of solar radiation, solar thermal power plants are a commercially attractive option for generating large volumes of CO2-free energy.
