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.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
