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 Galíndez, LATAM Research & Project Manager at CSP Today/PV Insider, has confirmed the participation of C-level executives from Abengoa, SolarReserve, BrightSource Energy and Grupo Ibereólica, as well as PV companies Enel Green Power, SolarPack, Solairedirect and SunEdison.
