Desertec stands for the overall vision of supplying a large part of the world with sustainable power, by tapping the energy potential of the desert. Dii (launched as "Desertec Industrial Initiative") is a private industry consortium working towards enabling this vision in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa (EUMENA).

Our initiative was founded under German law as a GmbH (limited liability company) in Munich on the 30th October 2009 by 13 signatories from North Africa and Europe. Dii expanded as further companies worldwide joined as shareholders or associated partners. Currently we consist of more than 55 companies and institutions, including the non-profit DESERTEC Foundation, and the Frauenhofer and Max-Planck research institutes.

Today, more than 30 people work at the Dii head office in Munich, Germany.

Dii also has branches in Rabat, Morocco and Tunis, Tunisia.

We seek and welcome all forms of collaboration with leading or complementary international political and institutional initiatives who, like us, are devoted to developing the markets for largescale sustainable energy production and transmission.
