Rackam takes part in Task49 conference in South Africa
27 January 2014
Rackam was among the most innovative organizations to take part in the International Energy Agency’s Task49 conference in Stellenbosch, South Africa. This conference brought together several industrial, academic and governmental actors from different levels. Their goal was to discuss the progress that has been made in the field of solar thermal technologies.
South Africa remains one of the world’s sunniest places in terms of direct solar radiation. The South African government has notably created several programmes aiming to support the development of solar energy and energy efficiency. Such institutions include the National Cleaner Production Centre (NCPC) and the Renewable Energy Centre of Research and Development (RECORD).
As such, a team of Rackam engineers will remain present in South Africa for about two weeks in order to meet potential partners. A field report will also be published on the state of the solar thermal industry in South Africa.
