Start of SHC/SWC 2019 in Chile

As many as two Chilean government ministers welcomed attendees to the joint SHC 2019 and SWC 2019 conference in the capital of Santiago this week: Energy Minister Juan Carlos Jobet and Science Minister Andrés Couve. While it is rare to see high-ranking officials attend research conferences on solar technology, the SHC and SWC became the country’s largest events on climate change in Chile this year after the cancellation of the UN Climate conference COP25, which had been scheduled to take place in Santiago in December. Over 300 experts in solar energy have come to Chile from one of about 50 countries to debate a wide variety of topics, ranging from cooling and integration into buildings to education and training and industrial process heat, at the conference, which will come to an end this Friday.
