SolarPACES has been active for more than 30 years to facilitate
the market entry of Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) and Chemical
Energy Systems through international cooperation. In a long tradition
of biannual symposiums we have been the foremost forum for the
who’s who in the world of concentrating solar energy.
Against the background of dynamic growth and commercial
success of this technology, SolarPACES 2009 offers:
Insight into new developments in technology, politics, the
market and financing presented by top experts in the field;
- A scientific conference programme with leading world experts
and particular emphasis on recent research results;
- A forum for industry, research, politics and financing stakeholders
to discuss the future of concentrating solar energy.
Due to rapid developments in the sector of CSP, from 2009
onwards SolarPACES will change from biannual to annual events
and will team up with ESTELA, the European Solar Thermal Electricity
Associaton, at the 2009 Berlin conference.
SolarPACES 2009 is also an excellent opportunity to visit Berlin,
the dynamic capital of Germany in the geographical centre of a
