Virtual Network & Connect Events – March 2023 – Thank you!

To celebrate International Women’s Day, Women+ in Concentrated Solar organized the first global online networking events, with two time slots depending on your region. We met online with concentrated solar experts from all over the world.

At a glance

Rebecca Mitchell works at NREL on algorithms to determine error of heliostats and she is also creating a database on CSP education related materials. During the first networking event on March 9, 2023, she met with many CSP experts, who could provide her materials for her database. Also, Dr. Natalie Hanrieder from DLR works with meteorological data and kindly offered to share the collected data on DNI with other participants who do the simulation and modeling. A common ground was also generally acknowledged concerning the challenges of promoting concentrated solar thermal technologies in our respective countries.

These are just a few examples of successful matchmaking and connections during these two networking events, where more than 30 members of the concentrated solar community, from all around the world (Europe, Americas, Africa and Asia), got to know one another and had a chance to talk about their work and interests. These networking events were a great opportunity to establish international collaborations, learn more about the current work of colleagues and find useful connections.

We also discussed about your interests in possible future actions of our Women+ in Concentrated solar group. Thank you, we’ll take them under consideration, we are already working on it! If you want to tell us more or help us, you can answer our survey.

Thank you!

Thank you everyone who joined these two Networking Events of Women+ in Concentrated Solar! We were very pleased to meet all of you and have some time to chat about our work and possible connections. It was amazing and inspiring to hear all your stories. This is already helping us to create a women and underrepresented genders network to connect and support one another!

We are already planning our next event, so remember to follow us on social media and subscribe to our newsletter to not miss anything. See you soon!

You can also become a member of our network. All gender identities are welcome!

Women+ in Concentrated Solar at Genera

Genera is the International Energy and Environment fair (www.ifema.es/genera), one of the the largest commercial platforms for this industry, that counts with the support of the Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving, IDAE (Spanish Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge) as well as with the renewed support of the main agents of this important economic sector.

This year’s edition took place in Madrid, from 21th to 23th February, and some members of Women+ in Concentrated Solar gathered in this fair. It was an opportunity to talk, exchange opinions as well as to catch up on the advances in renewable energies.
