COMMON SPECIFIC SUBAREAS OF COOPERATION Basic research common interests• Studies of solar resources in Latin America including social, geographical and economic, industrial needs issues.• Metrological standars• Components and control systems• Thermal energy storage (phase-change materials, fluid heat transfers, advanced systems, mechanical storage configuration)• Development of critical concentrator materials (recievers, solar fields)• Water-use footprint (desalinization, water treatment, toxicity treatments…).• Solar technologies in buildings.• Trainning and scientific interchanges programs EU+LAC (doctoral and senior profiles)
COMMON SPECIFIC SUBAREAS OF COOPERATION Demonstration common activities• Geographical R+D adaptability needs (mirrors, electric systems, heat tramision fluids, receivers, solar fields, among others). Mainly Fresnel in Argentina and Dish Stirling in Mexico• Direct Solar Steam (quality, purity…)• Solar concentration thermal generation applied to both heating and cooling and electricity• Improvement in the environmental and water-use footprint• Solar Hydrogen production and other solar subproducts• Hybridization systems (biogas, natural gas, biomass, geothermal)• Distributed generation (low-medium installed capacity) in isolated areas.
PROPOSED COOPERATION ACTIVITIES* -New development of components in a pilot plant Fresnel and parabolic trough solar technology -Partners; Universidad Nacional de Salta (AR) in cooperation with national industry+CIEMAT (ES)+CINVESTAV-IPN (ME)+UNAM (ME)+CENIDET (ME)+IIE (ME)+CEA (FR) -Thermal energy storage mainly in distributed generation -Partners; Universidad Nacional de Salta (AR)+CIEMAT (ES)+ CEA (FR)*The countries represented at the meeting were; MX, ES, FR, AR. Other national points of view have not been taking intoconsideration at the time of the preparation of the this document
OTHER PROPOSED ACTIVITIES*: Capacitation, Innovation Promotion, Technology Transference, etc -Cooperation agreement among a network of research centres in Latin America (ME and potentialy others) and in Europe -Partners; Red Temática de Energías Renovables (ME)+CIEMAT (ES) --Exchange of public policies experiences in the field of concentrated solar LAC-EU (regulatory framework, incentives, etc). -Partners; Policy makers in energy from Latin America and Europe*The countries represented at the meeting were; MX, ES, FR, AR. Other national points of view have not been taking intoconsideration at the time of the preparation of the this document
FINAL RECOMMENDATIONS1. A Latin American roadmap is needed with a view to establishing the pathway of the coming policies in the field of concentrated solar power that are expected to be taken in Latin America.2. A Latin American common energy framework (internal coordination) is of paramount importance in the concentrated solar area, e. g. the Set Plan in Europe3. It is encoraged to launch a trainning and scientific interchange programs EU+LAC
