The International Solar Energy Society (ISES), the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (IEA SHC) and the Solar Energy Research Center (SERC-Chile) are pleased to invite you to the ISES Solar World Congress 2019 (SWC 2019), to be held together with the SHC 2019 Conference. This event will take place in Santiago, Chile from November 4 to 7, 2019.
The conference organizers are committed to making this a unique event for those working in the Government, Industrial, Educational and Academic sectors the opportunity to network, learn and share with others in their profession and those working in parallel fields in Chile, Latin America and the rest of the world.
SWC 2019 / SHC 2019 will include a diverse selection of presentations, forums, policy discussions and business exhibits open for all participants.
We know, and every day more people are acknowledging that humanity must make the transition to 100% renewable energy in this century. And the latest reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) show that this transition must take place much sooner than previously thought to prevent grave human health and environmental damage.
We know that solar energy is the most abundant energy source available for humanity. The fact that Chile also has probably the best solar resource available worldwide has been known for over a century. Today, solar energy will be a key source for economic development of Chile and the region.
Join us for this landmark event. We are organizing many parallel activities as well as a post Congress Technical Tour to visit landmark solar facilities in Northern Chile.
This conference will give you a chance to present your work, participate in Workshops and Forums and meet researchers, developers and industry and government actors and send you home inspired and motivated to continue moving the world towards 100% renewable energy.
