For the promotion of solar thermal power technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, together with Chinese Renewable Energy Society and Chinese Society of Engineering Thermophysics have decided to organize a large international annual seminar each year to provide a communication platform for enterprisers, government officials and investors. This forum provides a chance not only to inspire mind but to make business partners. SanYa, a beautiful seaside city will be the permanent place of this forum. Thoughts can be settled in the breeze from the coco trees and ocean waves. The first forum was held there on August 8 to August 12, 2007 with representatives from China, Spain and Korea. The second forum is intended to be held from 26 August to 28 August, 2008. So far, representatives from Korea, Spain, Italy, Australia and China have registered.
Topics in this forum will cover solar resource and plant site selection, solar thermal power technology and economy, national and regional policies for solar thermal power and investment strategies
The forum encourages all kinds of views from multiple subjects and levels. Speaking style is free on the forum. The attendees may make presentation orally, or send the video, recording and written paper to the forum providing they cannot present in person.
Besides the conference, the organizer will organize small mono-workshops aiming to those hot questions.
Forum languages are both Chinese and English, and bilateral interpretation will be available. All full papers will be published in print and on CD.
Welcome to join the forum and support it, let’s get together to promote the development and commercialization of solar thermal power technology.
