CENTRA debuts with an Industrial Research Chair through a project with the Chilean Solar Energy Association (ACESOL)
The Center for Energy Transition (CENTRA) of the Adolfo Ibáñez University (UAI) has just created the Industrial Research Chairs, which debuts with an applied research project with the Chilean Solar Energy Association (ACESOL). The initiative aims to generate new knowledge and tools for the efficient integration of energy resources (sources, storage systems and charging stations, for example) distributed in Chile, to promote regulatory or normative…
Evaluation of the Distributed Generation Industry as an Engine of Employment and Efficient and Sustainable Economic Development in Chile Post COVID-19
The study aims to explore the potential of distributed generation, providing technical and economic background that allows the Ministry of Energy to evaluate the implementation of a plan to promote the industry of distributed energy resources as a vehicle for job creation and efficient and sustainable energy development. At the same time, establish criteria and methodologies to incorporate the development of distributed energy resources in…
Repair and recertification of silicon photovoltaic panels using additive manufacturing
This project consists of evaluating the health status of photovoltaic panels installed in Chilean territory and contributing to the management of waste from defective panels. This involves the identification of operating cells in waste panels, their disconnection and subsequent reconnection in repaired panels, for subsequent recertification, by printing organic inks with conductive properties based on metallic nanoparticles.
