German Firms Launch Desertec Solar Energy Project.

A group of German firms has collaborated to launch what is to be the largest solar energy
project of its kind. The project, termed Desertec, aims to construct several solar thermal electric
power plants throughout North Africa and parts of the Middle East. Ultimately, the project will
supply electricity to European households using energy generated from the Sahara.

Electricity will be generated in power plants using parabolic mirrors, which creates enough heat
to produce the steam needed to drive turbines and electricity generators. High voltage lines will
carry electricity to Europe, supplying 15 percent of the continent’s electricity requirements.

Other parts of the world using this method of electricity generation span from the Mojave Desert
in California to the Andalusia region in the south of Spain.
