DESERTEC: Sustainable Wealth for Every Human on Earth

 → The DESERTEC Foundation makes the biggest idea of the 21st Century real: green Desert-Energy, that advances the Decarbonization of Europe, guaranties Africa clean prosperity and makes the Middle East independent from oil-income. For this process, we have gathered governments, businesses and experts/scientists for years. We are the Lobby for Desert-Energy. Everyone talks about Nuclear Fusion and Superbatteries… we present a solution already tested in the harsh environment of reality. We want to scale this idea to a global solution!

“Emerging regions urgently need clean and reliable energy as the basis for prosperity, food and drinking water production. At the same time, we can accelerate the energy revolution of the rich world with energy imports from desert regions. We have to promote this development. It’s not about Germany or Europe, it’s our responsibility for the whole planet.

We must not destroy the future of the children with technology of yesterday.

PROF. DR. H.C. Roland Berger

What is Desert Energy?

Desert Energy is simply the term for all energy produced in deserts. Deserts have been unproductive lands in the past, with no agriculture. But in the 21st Century we do not only need to feed soon to be 10 billion people. They have a hunger for energy as well. 

As bad as deserts are for food production, for energy production they are ideal. At no other place in the world the sun shines that much and so many strong winds blow across a flat plane. 

How we can already capture and more important distribute that energy is described under “Technology”

For every densely populated area in the world there is a desert nearby to power it. This makes Desert Energy a project were Industrial Nations, Developing Countries, Tech-Companies and Investors can work together to utilize the possibilities of the desert. 

What advantages this offers to each of the partners is covered under “Development and Investment”
