[en] At long last, after a sluggish decade of decline, the European Union solar thermal market for hot water production and heating applications appears to have returned to growth. According to EurObserv'ER, the 2018 European market posted a rise of some 8.4% compared to 2017, which equates to 2.2 million m2 of newly-installed surface. However, the amounts of growth vary by country and market segment. Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) is a blanket term for all the technologies that aim to convert the energy of the sun's rays into very high temperature heat. While the main use of these plants is to generate electricity, CSP can also be used to supply heating networks or be integrated into industrial processes.
[en] The ocean energy sector has been a beehive of activity over the last three years with many prototypes being submerged off the British, Brittany, North Sea and Mediterranean coastlines. Tidal stream energy leads wave energy conversion and the other technologies in this ocean race. This is the first time that the sector has been specifically monitored for a regular EurObserv'ER theme-based barometer
