2 000 MW Concentrated Solar Power Unit – Feasibility Study for connection to Europe







RTE international has provided a study on the development of a generation program based on a solar unit aiming at supplying 12 to 24 TWh/year to the European system. Commissioning is planned for 2025 with a connection to the European transmission grid via HVDC lines between Tunisia and Italy or France.

Services delivered

  • Evaluation of the advantages and disadvantages for the French, Italian and European systems
  • Comparison of potential connection points and their impact on local and downstream energy flows
  • Evaluation of the project impact on the network security criteria and determination, if necessary, of the necessary limitations to guarantee the respect of the security criteria
  • Study of the technical feasibility of the connection to the very-high-voltage network
