Brazil: Industrial solar heat strategy and training

The international Solar Payback project has launched a series of training courses on industrial solar heat. The first course, held for three days in São Paulo, Brazil, from November 12 to 14, was well-received by the around 40 engineers, planners and industry representatives participating in it (see photo).
