Proceedings of a workshop organised by the Hamburger Climate Fonds (HKF) with support from the Institute for Solar Energy Technology (ISET) at Kassel University on 30 September 1998 in the conference centre of the German Physical Society in Bad Honnef.
During this workshop technical and scientific experts presented what the long-distance transmission of electrical energy could accomplish and what sources of electricity from solar energy, wind and hydropower for Europe it could thus make available from North and Central Africa and from Iceland. It shows the possibility for imported electricity from renewable sources to contribute in sufficient quantity to the base load for about 15 Pf/Kwh and below. It was discussed what national interests the exporting countries may have in mind and what political assistance they might get from the German Government for exporting solar generated electricity for climate reasons.
