Internacional Conference on Solar Technologies and Hybrid Mini-Grids

Trama TecnoAmbiental (TTA), ALER’s member, organised, in partnership with Universitat de les Illes Baleares, the International Conference on Solar Technologies & Hybrid Mini Grids to improve energy access, from 17th to 19th October 2018, in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.


In this second edition, around 135 participants were present from 37 countries, and 80 presentations about the subject were held.


The main objective was to provide an opportunity for an exchange between practitioners from industry, academia and development institutions working in the area of decentralized energy. The conference covered technical, business and management aspects of solar technologies and mini grids with the aim of sharing experiences, learning from each other and networking.


In parallel, two side events were organized, one by the World Bank on “Build Mini Grids at Scale”; and the other by Energy Access Innovation Lab on “Affordable Energy for Humanity (AE4H)”, that promoted even more practical know how.


The third edition of the conference is expected in spring 2020.
