    There are those that have very ambitious plans for CSP:

    that essentially involve CSP plants in North Africa, and high voltage DC lines to bring the power up into Europe.

    At the link above, there is a Google Earth kmz file that you can download.  Most CSP plants are large enough that they can easily be seen from Google Earth, and it is kind of fun to look them over.  Some of them are new enough that they don't appear on the photos.  In some cases, someone has made the effort to figure out the real location, in other cases the locations are just approximate.
