Program of Strategic Support to the Scientific Research
Development of photovoltaic solar energy in Africa by the year 2030
BACKGROUND AND JUSTIFICATION
The rapid increase of the world population and the industrial development of the countries cause an increase of the energy needs. On a global scale, current energy production is essentially based on exhaustible resources called "non-renewable" such as oil, natural gas, coal or uranium.
These fossil fuels produce greenhouse gases, responsible for global warming, and the storage of nuclear waste poses a problem, which is attracting interest in renewable energy sources that come directly or indirectly from the sun.
These renewable energy sources are of several types, mainly: hydroelectric power, marine energy, geothermal energy, wind energy, biomass energy and solar energy (photovoltaic, photothermal energy). , thermodynamics).
However, in Africa, despite the high level of solar irradiance, photovoltaic power generation is poorly developed and many rural areas do not have access to electricity, hence the theme chosen for this symposium: "DEVELOPMENT OF SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC SOLAR IN AFRICA IN THE 2030 HOUR".
It is in this context that the PASRES (Program of Strategic Support to the Scientific Research of Ivory Coast) organizes said symposium on 08 and 09 November 2018 in Abidjan. This symposium will bring together researchers and specialists from several countries in Africa and Europe.
# Main Objective
This symposium aims to provide an international framework to facilitate discussion, exchange of knowledge on research results, current and future challenges regarding the development of solar PV and their applications in Africa.
Different sectors of photovoltaic conversion systems , off-grid and rural Solar energy storage problem
Solar electrification network
off-grid and rural Solar energy storage problem
Market, extension and quality of service in the photovoltaic sector
Collaboration, partnership and funding of research
Specifically, it is:
Provide a platform for sharing knowledge and experiences between the scientific community, researchers, private local and international institutions;
Facilitate the development of links between the scientific community and policy makers so that they can adequately meet the needs of the population in terms of solar photovoltaic energy;
Facilitate the transfer of technologies to Africa;
Identify obstacles to the development of the photovoltaic industry.
Engineers and Technicians
PhD Students and Post docs
All other actors operating in the field of solar energy.
The symposium will be held from Thursday 08 to Friday 09 November 2018 to AZALAI Hotel in Abidjan (Ivory Coast).
