The Trans-Mediterranean Renewable Energy Cooperation, an initiative of the Club of Rome, is an international network of scientists and engineers developing a collaboration amongst countries in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa (EUMENA) to take advantage of the truly enormous quantities of energy falling as sunlight on the world's deserts—and wind energy in those regions too.

TREC-UK is a group of volunteers who are interested in the 'DESERTEC' concept developed by TREC and aim to raise awareness of it in the UK and beyond. We are also interested in the development of policies that will help make the DESERTEC concept into a reality.
