The initiative is designed to meet the needs of tomorrow’s world by addressing today’s global energy challenges.
The Solar Demonstration Platform is an innovative project at national and European level, focused on developing specialized renewable energy production as well savings solutions by creating a nucleus platform for the advanced training, research and development of energy technologies and solutions. The new business model aims to complete the solutions circuit by integrally launching product demonstration, communication and commercialization from this platform. This is the first stage of the initiative.
The roll out of the Solar Demo Platforms is in progress for the Eastern Algarve as well as Alentejo regions. The Solar Demo Platforms will enable a range of activities associated with the monitoring, development, commercialization and communication of several cutting edge concentrated solar technologies.
The Center for Sustainable Energy is planned as the second stage of the initiative. The Center for Sustainable Energy will include integrated solar design, energy efficiency technology integration solutions, and the implementation of a professional training center for the renewable energy and sustainable construction sectors.
