Fostering Solar Technology in the Mediterranean area

Fostering Solar Technology in the Mediterranean area

Project in brief

The Mediterranean region is characterized by the significant potential of solar energy. The sunlight
time ranges from 2650 to 3400 hours per year with average radiation going up to 3200
kWh/m2 per year.

Despite these favorable weather conditions, the development of solar energy in
the Mediterranean area is still limited by technical, institutional, financial and market barriers.
FOSTEr in MED intends to fully exploit the potential of solar technologies through the transfer of
technical knowhow to actors of the sector (SMEs, engineers, students), the identification of best
practices in the policy and regulatory fields and the implementation of five pilot projects aiming to
equip public buildings with innovative solar photovoltaic plants.
