International Super-Grids Powered by Concentrated Solar Power

On February 16 2011 I had the chance to visit for the first time the EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

I was invited as a speaker at the workshop "Smart and Super Grids: vision for a European energy infrastructure", chaired by Mr. Vittorio Prodi, Member of the European Parliament and chair of the subgroup “Energy” of the European Parliament Intergroup “Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development.”

I gave a presentation based on recent work on supergrids and concentrated solar power joint with Elena Ricci. You can dowload the presentation here.

This presentation complements the one I gave at a meeting hosted at the European Parliament in Brussels in early January 2011: link.
