Now the Jülich solar power plant can be used to demonstrate for the first time the technology for a solar tower power plant that was developed in Germany as a complete system. The solar thermal power plant in Jülich thus serves as a reference for future commercial power plants in southern Europe and North Africa, which will play a major role in the desert power project DESERTEC. The technology and the knowledge obtained by the researchers in Jülich will be used in sunny regions of the world, where solar thermal power plants have the greatest potential.
