CSP TODAY LATAM 2013 announces new speaker additions, enhanced program and a site visit to CSP plant

With more than 100 attendees already confirmed, CSP TODAY LATAM 2013 has become the key event for the CSP industry in LATAM

CSP Today LATAM 2013 is the first event celebrated in Antofagasta, in a series that covers the concentrated solar power (CSP) industry worldwide. On 17-18 July, the "mining capital" of Chile will witness the coming together of all the main industry stakeholders. This includes CSP developers, EPC companies, suppliers, offtakers – such as mining companies and utilities – and key government and financial institutions such as the Chilean Ministry of Energy, CORFO and the KfW among others.

As the event gets closer, new updates have been released by CSP Today regarding the evolution of the program. The speaker list has been steadily growing and more than 20 new local and international speakers have been added to the line-up, taking the total of experts to well over 40. New additions include the likes of Abantia, IDOM, Alatec, ATA, Ingeteam, KfW, Minera El Tesoro, SCHOTT, S2M, SolarReserve and many more.
Furthermore the program has been complemented with new sessions. An in-depth analysis of the expectations and status of the CSP government bid will be conducted with the key institutions and stakeholders. A new financing workshop aimed for financial professionals has also been organized as a side event, and will be led by experts with years of experience structuring project finance for CSP plants.
The event will be also followed by a site visit to the CSP plant "El Tesoro" the day after the event, giving attendees the opportunity not only to see the first CSP operational plant in Latin America, but also to see how a mine operates. The 14MWt parabolic trough plant is the first of a kind and a benchmark for mining companies worldwide.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
