|| The report assesses potential impacts associated to the future deployment of CSP cooperation projects, which have not been accounted for in the MUSTEC modeling exercise but may become an obstacle or a driver for the successful deployment of such projects such as socioeconomic, social and environmental impacts.
Also, it presents the results of the sustainability assessment of two CSP technologies: a parabolic trough power plant and a central receiver power plant. For each of these technologies three scenarios are evaluated: a Pure Spanish Investment scenario, where most of the investments are made by Spanish firms, a second scenario that exemplifies a possible cooperation project with Germany as off-taker and a third scenario that considers China as a supplier of some components.
Finally, the report presents sustainability assessment results for an alternative technology equivalent in terms of flexibility and dispatchability that uses PV panels and batteries.
