The Global Market Initiative (GMI) originated in 2004 at the International Conference on Renewable Energy in Bonn. The governments of Algeria, Egypt, Germany, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Morocco, and Spain, as well as a variety of international organizations such as economic associations and research institutes, are involved in the GMI.
The GMI's goal is the rapid implementation of solar thermal technology in the various markets in the Earth's Sun Belt. 5,000 megawatts of installed solar thermal capacity are to be produced by 2015. The solar thermal power plants should then be fully competitive with fossil fuelled peak and medium load power plants.
