20th SolarPACES Conference

DDDDDDDDDDDDD Written by  Dr. Manuel J. Blanco, Chairman SolarPACES Executive Committee

Today, the International SolarPACES Conference started in Beijing, China. Over the years, the International SolarPACES Conference has positioned itself as the reference international conference of the Concentrating Solar Thermal (CST) and Solar Chemistry community of researchers, policy makers, and industry.

This year is not an exception: a large number of researchers, industry representatives and policy makers are participating in the conference, exchanging views and experiences, analysing problems, and exploring possibilities for collaborations.

China has played an important role in the development of CST technologies in the last years and it will play an increasing role in the years to come.

Among the highlights of the day it is worth mentioning the presentation by the International Energy Agency of the PV and CSP roadmaps, as well as the reporting by several country representatives of the situation of CSP in their respective markets.
