    Protermosolar, the Spanish Solar Thermal Electricity Association, has updated the macroeconomic impact of the STE industry in Spain for 2011.

    In the 2011, Protermosolar has published a study elaborated by Deloitte on the macroeconomic impact of CSP in Spain for 2010. In order to update the study, they have used the same ratios during 2011 to all power plant under construction or in operation, along with another set of consistent hypotheses in line with those used by Deloitte in 2010.
