Solar industry to gather at CHILESOL this May in Santiago

CSP Today and PV Insider launch the 2nd Chilean Solar Conference & Expo (CHILESOL), which will gather the concentrated solar power (CSP) and photovoltaic (PV) industries in Santiago on 27-28 May.

CSP industry attention has turned to Chile since the announcement of the results of the first international bid last month. The approval of the Law 20/25 (which aims for 20% of renewable generation for 2025 in Chile) has also prompted massive growth in the PV sector, with the project construction pipeline rising by 184% from 2013.

Industry observers have identified a key set of challenges that now need to be addressed in order for the market to grow, including grid connectivity, energy transmission and project financing.
In order to tackle these challenges, CSP Today and PV Insider have announced the CHILESOL conference. The new format, bringing together the CSP and PV industries, will provide a day of solving macro-level challenges, with a second day of tracks dedicated to the individual technologies.
Mercedes Galndez, LATAM Research & Project Manager at CSP Today/PV Insider, has confirmed the participation of C-level executives from Abengoa, SolarReserve, BrightSource Energy and Grupo Iberelica, as well as PV companies Enel Green Power, SolarPack, Solairedirect and SunEdison.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
