Greece and Tunisia, has joined the Desertec Industrial Initiative (Dii) as an
Associated Partner. Kevin Sara, Nur Energie CEO comments: "Nur Energie's
strategy is to build local partnerships in the markets where we operate. The
European Union will become an important export market for renewable energy in
the future, and the Dii will be a key partner in creating the framework
conditions for renewable energy export projects from North Africa into the
European Union."

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) project in Greece, as well as France's
largest building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) project on the roofs of the

utilizing PV, CSP and Concentrating PV (CPV) technologies across projects in
Greece, France, Italy and Tunisia.

Dr. Till Stenzel, Nur Energie's Chief Operating Officer (COO) adds: "We
have been analyzing the commercial opportunity for solar export projects from
North Africa to Europe for the past two years and we firmly believe that they
are a commercially viable option for a greener energy future that is less
dependent on volatile fossil fuels, as well as creating jobs and economic
development opportunities across the Maghreb region. We look forward to
working with the Dii on implementing the first projects at the earliest

As an Associated Partner of Desertec (, Nur Energie
will focus on contributing its expertise and experience in solar project
development in the Maghreb region.
