Mexican Solar Innovation for a Sustainable Environment


Tuesday, April 18, 2023 I 10:00am CST I 6:00pm CET I Language: Spanish

The webinar will focus on two topics: the use of solar thermal energy for biofuel production in Mexico and the new concept of “emotional energy communities”. Concentrated solar thermal technology for processing lignocellulosic waste from the sawmill industry may be an attractive, viable and sustainable option for biofuels production in Mexico. The analysis of emotions and emotional processes, both at the individual and community-level, during energy transitions such as electrification plays a fundamental role.
