It’s one of the biggest international events of the year for solar thermal experts and for the first time it was held in Australia!
The SolarPACES (Solar Power and Chemical Energy Systems) executive committee meeting and conference enticed experts from countries including USA, Spain, Germany, France and China. During the event they discussed important solar thermal issues and all the latest developments in the technology, markets and the future of the technology.
CSIRO’s Wes Stein told us, ‘We’re hearing from the experts about their experiences in their different countries, not only around research and technology programs, but also around the measures that have made advancements possible in their country.’
This is important stuff for the future of solar thermal research and technology – to help get this technology operating efficiently and make it more affordable.
CSIRO’s two solar towers were operating for the visitors during the event as working examples of the technology.
