The Union of renewable energy and solar thermal industry (CSP ) will host the third edition of their conference Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013 .

The thermodynamic solar energy includes all techniques that transform the energy radiated by the sun into heat at high temperature. This thermal energy can then feed any industrial process heat consumers with medium or high in the first place , electricity generation temperature.

Resource potential in this area is important in areas where direct sunlight is intense. The latter are mainly in North Africa, the Middle East, Australia , South - western United States, India or Central Asia.

Development prospects of this renewable energy is considerable , as shown by the prospective scenarios established , inter alia, the International Energy Agency .
