SolarPaces brings together scientists, engineers and administrators from countries and corporations all over the world that are pushing the state of the art of thermal solar conversion. Part of its mission is to share information about advances and to assist in eliciting and aligning international collaboration to accelerate the achievement of those advances. Another important part of its mission is to alert communities, governments and the general public of those advances, of the potential for further improvement, and of the dangers for all of us if this most reasonable of all technologies to convert the most widely distributed and abundant energy resource is not given the priority on which our shared future is likely to depend on the medium term.
To further the outreach of SolarPACES is the goal of this Blog and of the rest of the SolarPACES social media ecosystem that we are starting to deploy. Through this blog and the associated social media ecosystem we aim to engage in informed conversations with the scientific community and the society at large regarding the many interesting and beneficial aspects of concentrating solar power technologies and to further the public understanding of the role that these technologies should play in paving the way towards a sustainable world energy system.
