Chair's Message

Dear friends and colleagues,

As the world’s largest and most complete technical conference on concentrating solar technologies, the SolarPACES annual conference is needed more each year as we head towards the 100% renewable world. Every year it becomes more obvious that urgent action is required to power our global civilization without fossil fuels. The scientific evidence for the threat of climate change is undeniable. Many nations have already adopted plans to become climate neutral by 2050 or even before, and now specific policies need to be enacted to unleash the advantages that CSP is ready to bring to meet these challenges.
