International Conference and Fair on
Education, Research & Employment in the Renewable Energy Sector
Santiago, Chile
11th to 12th November 2010

This conference and fair was specifically aimed to cover areas such as funding, initiatives and research projects in renewable energy, as well as work experience and technology transfer in the areas of renewable energy and climate change. It was organised by the Department of Electrical Engineering and the Department of Industrial Engineering in the Faculty of Physical Sciences and Mathematics at the University of Chile.

On the one hand, this conference exposed Chilean researchers and renewable energy professionals to the forefront of research in this field. Furthermore, it also allowed Chilean researchers to obtain solid feedback while establishing collaborative networks. Last but not least, it allowed Chilean professionals to meet local and foreign faculty members, which is very significant when it comes to encountering different approaches.

The conference was inaugurated by Mr Francisco Brieva R., Dean of the Faculty of Physical Sciences and Mathematics and Professor Walter Leal from Hamburg University of Applied Sciences. They both highlighted the importance of renewable energies development and, in particular, the education provided by institutions of higher education in Chile and Latin America.

Lectures on the primary topics of the event were given by Chilean experts such as Rodrigo Palma and Luis Vargas, faculty members of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Chile, Maricel Gibbs, Manager of Chile CO2 Agency (also from the University of Chile), and Carolina Galleguillos, Director of the Centre for Renewable Energy (CER), as well as Ms. Susan Agüero, representative of the Delegation of the European Union in Chile.

On the second day of this conference, Mr Fernando Mancilla-David (University of Colorado in Denver) provided an outstanding lecture on “Construction, modelling, analysis and control of small-scale wind turbines“, which was very well received by the attendees.

The conference took place at the Gorbea convention hall of the Faculty of Physical Sciences and Mathematics of the University of Chile from 11 to 12 November 2010 with over 100 participants.
