Mexico: Lab Group Targets Uniform Test Standard

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on February 20, 2013

The workshop Quality Assurance for Solar Water Heaters, which took place in Mexico in September 2012, seems to bear fruit: The German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) seized the initiative to help establish a group of solar test laboratories, which developed their first joint action plan during their first meeting in November 2012. Four of the five Mexican solar thermal test facilities joined the newly formed group LabSolMx: The Energy Research Center of the Autonomous University of Mexico, CIE-UNAM, the Autonomous University of Mexico City, UACM, the Mexican Solar Test Laboratory, Mexolab, and the company Saltillo Industrial Group, GIS, which runs a commercial laboratory. Among the participants of the workshop was Alvaro Lentz Herrera, Professor at the UACM and President of Mexico’s national solar energy association, ANES. The University of Guanajuato has not joined the group, because its lab mainly focuses on research.
