star this property answer text <p>I am aware of proposals to invest in concentrated solar power (CSP) projects in the desert regions of North Africa and the Middle East. The UK supports in principle such proposals as a means of providing local energy supply and economic development, reducing greenhouse emissions and potentially contributing to the EU’s security of electricity supply. We continue to monitor developments in this area. However, in present circumstances, geographical factors, costs, and the need to further reinforce electricity connections within the EU and linking the EU with third countries mean that the majority of Member States, including the UK, would not currently be in a position to benefit from imports of CSP generated electricity.</p> more like this
