These projects take into account thermal and electrical requirements, as well as operational technologies and solar plant controls. Using an integrated approach, SERC seeks to contribute new knowledge and technological developments to enhance the breakthrough of solar energy in the industries located in the Atacama region, which will compensate for dependency on combustible fuels and reduce the carbon footprint.
