CENTRA UAI holds seminar on smart grids with integration of solar roofs

The Energy Transition Center (Centra) of the Faculty of Engineering and Sciences of the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (UAI) held on Monday, June 3, the seminar “Distribution networks with high integration of solar roofs: lessons from the Australian case”. The activity took place between 9 and 11 am, with free access and in hybrid format at the Vitacura Campus (Room 7, Av. Santa María 5870). The…

New UAI renewable energy lab course allows students to learn about solar and wind energy in the field and power electronics in the lab

Among its attractions, it includes a “wind tunnel” to measure the impact of various variables on wind turbines and a photovoltaic field to analyze the impact of various operation and maintenance strategies on production and operating costs. The infrastructure also allows new photovoltaic modules to be tested under real conditions and to conduct research and technology transfer. The Civil Engineering in Energy career of the…

Center for Energy Transition researcher presents on distributed energy at Proyecta Solar 2024

The Chilean Solar Energy Association (ACESOL) held the sixth edition of the Proyecta Solar 2024 seminar and solar fair, an event that was inaugurated by the Undersecretary of Energy, Luis Felipe Ramos. Ramos highlighted the importance of clean energy in Chile and the joint effort to regulate and advance projects that will allow the country to achieve its carbon neutrality goals. During the seminar, Luis…

World Energy Efficiency Day, a review of our Law

By Luis Gutiérrez, academic and researcher at the Energy Transition Center (CENTRA) of the Faculty of Engineering and Sciences UAI, and SERC Chile. Every March 5 we celebrate World Energy Efficiency Day, an instance to reflect on the rational and efficient use of energy, and the necessary transition to energy systems with high participation of renewable energies, with emphasis on those non-conventional (NCRE, mainly solar…

Centra UAI and Cigre develop first seminar focused on the energy user

The innovative meeting will include debates on the global energy crisis, security, carbon neutrality and climate change. In an event that seeks to address the challenges related to the energy user, the Chilean Committee of the International Council of Large Electrical Grids (Cigre Chile) and the Energy Transition Center (CENTRA) of the Faculty of Engineering and Sciences of the Adolfo Ibáñez University, will bring together specialists from…

Smart City Special

Experts agree that 5G has a great impact on Smart cities, revolutionizing their design and management. This trend offers a wide variety of capabilities, such as ultra-high bandwidth, low latency and speed in data transmission that contribute to cities with these types of characteristics. “5G allows data transmission speeds of up to one hundred times more than 4G in mobile phones, and a latency of…

Distributed Generation in Chile for global decarbonization

From the point of view of self-consumption, there is also evidence that the development of electricity supply systems with a high integration of generation and distributed storage can facilitate the electrification of transport and heating, which is crucial to achieve global decarbonization goals. It is difficult to conceive of a perspective from which a distributed energy supply system does not exceed the technical performance of…

Electric mobility could contribute 17% of Chile’s decarbonisation goal by 2050

Although 100% electric models have increased by 275% in three years, experts agree that it is urgent to advance in greater incentives, benefits and an ecosystem that allows the massification of electromobility throughout the national territory. It is estimated that today transport is responsible for 35% of energy consumption in our country. And of this segment, 86% corresponds to land transport. This means that the…
