ESTEC 2011 is setting new trends for solar thermal! For the first time, the biennial European Solar Thermal Energy Conference is being held outside Germany, the largest European market by far. In selecting France as the host country, ESTIF and ENERPLAN - the co-organizer of ESTEC 2011 - wanted to stress that the solar thermal market growth is increasingly coming from other large European countries, and in choosing Marseille, the gateway to the Mediterranean, highlight this region’s huge potential both from the northern and southern shores.
