Dr. Zhifeng Wang, researcher of the Institute as well as the chairman of SolarPACES 2014 international conference, Mr. Xiaobing Liu, general-secretary of the National Solar Thermal Energy Alliance presented in the meeting.

SolarPACES 2014 international conference will be held in Beijing on Sep. 16-Sep. 19, 2014 in China National Convention Center (CNCC), with the conference host of SolarPACES itself. IEECAS is the local organizer of this conference, with the support from the Alliance.

SolarPACES (Solar Power and Chemical Energy Systems) is an international cooperative network bringing together teams of national experts from around the world to focus on the development and marketing of concentrating solar power systems (also known as solar thermal power systems). It is one of a number of collaborative programs, called Implementing Agreements, managed under the umbrella of the International Energy Agency to help find solutions to worldwide energy problems.

As one of it’s core activities to support technical progress and awareness building in this area, the SolarPACES conference, initiated in 1980, is the foremost symposium for the who's who in concentrating solar power and chemical energy systems, offering a forum for research, industry, politics and financing stakeholders within the framework of a scientific conference program with leading world experts.
