The overall aim of SERC Chile is to build a solid base of knowledge on solar energy. For this second stage (2017-2022), four strategic focuses were defined for the development of solar energy in Chile:
1) Massive integration of large-scale solar energy to the electric interconnected system,
2) Solar energy based mining in Chile,
3) Development and widespread adoption of small-scale solar solutions and
4) Optimization and characterization of materials and solar resource under local conditions.
