With the grid parity development of solar PV and wind power, and the commercialization acceleration of electric energy storage, the concentrated solar power (CSP) is facing severe challenges. Reducing the cost is the urgent task, and among the cost reduction measures, technology advancement is the main way.
To build a platform and promote the exchange and cooperation of CSP science and technology, China Solar Thermal Alliance (CSTA) will hold the 5th China Solar Thermal Electricity Conference from August 20-22 in Hangzhou, with a local host of Supcon solar.
Currently the conference is calling for speeches. Recently Dr. Zhao Changying, Chair Professor, Director of Institute of Engineering Thermophysics of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and Executive Dean of China-UK Low Carbon College, confirmed that he will share the progress of thermochemical heat storage research.
If you would like to make a high-quality speech and contribute your wisdom and thoughts to the global CSP industry, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or submit your speech abstract online at http://en.cnste.org/plus/tougao.php.
Hangzhou is known as the paradise of human beings, we are looking forward to meeting you there.
