SolarPaces2014 - Concentrating Solar Power and Chemical Energy Systems
Dr. Zhifeng Wang


Dear Colleagues,

It is an honor to invite you to participate in the SolarPACES 2014 International Conference to be held September 16–19, 2014 in Beijing, China.

SolarPACES (Solar Power and Chemical Energy Systems) has evolved over more than 30 years, under the umbrella of the IEA, into a prestigious international network committed to advancing the state-of-the-art and to increasing the market penetration of concentrating solar power (CSP) and chemical energy systems. SolarPACES 2014, the 20th annual symposium, teamed up with ESTELA, the European Solar Thermal Electricity Association, will be again the central event at which the thriving international CSP community gathers to share experiences and reflect on the current status of CSP and chemical energy technologies.

SolarPACES 2014 therefore is a unique opportunity to offer:

  • A forum for industry, research, politics and financing stakeholders to discuss the future of concentrating solar energy.
  • A scientific and technical conference program with world leading experts and with a special emphasis on recent R&D results.
  • Insights into new developments in technology, politics, the market and financing presented by top experts in the fields.

CSP is going to experience an exciting time in China. The National Energy Administration (NEA) has set the installation target of CSP as 3GW by 2020. It’s expected that CSP will be deployed in a large-scale in China in short term. So far there’re several demonstration projects that have been launched in north areas of China, and the industry, together with the research institutes and universities are working together to accelerate its commercialization progress.
On behalf of SolarPACES and the national hosts Department of High and New Technology Development and Industrialization & Department of International Cooperation, Ministry of Science and Technology of the People's Republic of China, and Bureau of International Cooperation of Chinese Academy of Sciences, I kindly invite you to be a part of this exciting technical event at SolarPACES 2014. The conference also offers you an excellent opportunity to visit the beautiful city of Beijing. On behalf of SolarPACES, I’d like to show my gratitude to the conference organizers and the scientific committee for enabling the foremost international STP conference of 2014.

I look forward to meeting you at the conference in Beijing.


Dr. Zhifeng Wang
Chair, 2014 SolarPACES International Conference
Chair, National Solar Thermal Energy Alliance, China
Professor, Institute of Electrical Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences
