International CSP industry to gather next week in Santiago

Next week the international concentrated solar power community will meet at the 2nd Chilean Solar Conference & Exhibition in Santiago (27 & 28 May).

It will be the first time the solar industry is able to debate the new energy agenda presented by the Chilean Government last week.


In its second year, CSP Today will host CHILESOL 2014 next week in Santiago at the Ritz Carlton hotel. Leading developers of the industry will take to the stage including Abengoa, SolarReserve, Grupo Iberelica and BrightSource Energy, to share their project development plans in the country.

With the announcement of the new energy agenda in Chile by President Bachelet, ChileSol will be the first forum in which the solar industry gets to debate the new agenda face to face with the authorities such as Andrs Romero, Executive Secretary of the National Commission of Energy.

The Centre of Renewable Energy of the Ministry of Energy will be also presenting at the conference to share their role in encouraging green energy made by the official agenda.

Other key sectors of the energy mix in Chile will be sharing their insights at ChileSol, including the National Society of Mining which will provide an overview of the mining sector development in the country.

ChileSol 2014 will also gather the photovoltaic industry, splitting into two technology tracks on CSP and PV on the second day of the conference. It will also include a solar-focused exhibition with international and local companies including Dow Chemicals, Enersol, GeoModel Solar, Viasys, RioGlass, Promat, Tecnored, Bonfiglioli, ACERA and Fundacin Chile.
