4th International Conference on Solar Technologies & Hybrid Mini Grids to improve energy access

Join us at the 4th edition of the International Conference on Solar Technologies and Hybrid Mini-Grids to improve energy access, at the Universitat de les Illes Balears in Palma, Spain on April 26-28, 2023. HOMER Software founder, Peter Lilienthal, will be providing a historical perspective on the role of mini-grids in energy access and the International Hybrid Power Systems Workshop with his presentation: ‘The Evolution of Hybrid Power Systems: Insights from 30 years of modeling’. See the full event agenda here.

This event’s main objective is to provide an opportunity for an exchange between practitioners from the industry, academia, and development institutions working in the field of decentralized energy access and local development. The conference will cover hands-on technical, social, and environmental considerations, and business and management aspects with the aim of sharing experiences, learning from each other, and networking.

Solar PV and thermal technologies and other decentralized renewable energy technologies offer a unique opportunity to provide access to modern energy services to more than 1 billion people lacking access to energy in rural areas worldwide. Access to modern energy is an enabler and a necessary condition to improve the livelihood of households, increase the productivity of micro and small enterprises, improve services of public institutions, and provide crisis response to displaced communities.
