SolarPaces2015 - Concentrating Solar Power and Chemical Energy Systems

Invitation to Participate in SolarPACES 2017

Mr. Andrés Rebolledo
Minister of Energy, Government of Chile
Chair of SolarPACES 2017

Solar energy is undoubtedly the energy source that will allow us to face the main challenges associated with development and climate change. Renewable energies are the future of Chile and today 83% of the energy projects that are being built in the country are renewable and 48% of these are solar projects.

The emergence of new competitive technologies compels us to continually update our knowledge in order to  opportunely maximize the benefits that they offer. Matters such as the complementarity between different renewable energies, the role that energy storage technologies will play in the future or the best way to manage the operation Energy Systems with a high penetration of non-conventional renewables are being analyzed worldwide.

Chile has the goal that by 2050 70% of power generation will come from renewable sources, and we will  achieve it. The Energy Agenda launched by President Bachelet raises the need to build a sustainable energy matrix at reasonable prices and to take advantage of national energy resources, where solar energy will play a key role, not only because we have the best radiation in the world, but also because we have reached truly competitive prices compared to other technologies.

This year Chile will host the SolarPACES Conference for the first time, the world’s most important meeting on solar concentration technologies, which receives more than 500 researchers and representatives of the industry from nearly forty countries each year. It is a space where science and industry meet to discuss the main technological advances and the frontier of knowledge in solar concentration technologies and solar chemistry, two lines of work that our Solar Energy Program considers to be priorities. We are looking for economical and sustainable technological options based on the locally available solar resource for all our productive sectors, but specially for answering the current and future mining sector challenges.

We would like our country to be solar and we want Chileans to lead this revolution. We hope to welcome all relevant actors on the national level and we look forward to sharing our experience with the international leaders of this industry. It is therefore a great pleasure to invite you on behalf of the Ministry of Energy and the SolarPACES organizing committee to participate in this exciting conference and enjoy the hospitality of our beautiful country!
