The International Conference


The 2015 DERBI International Conference is host the 2nd edition of the National Solar Energy Days (JNES) from 1-3 July 2015 in Perpignan.
An event of national significance !


The DERBI (Development of Renewable Energies in Building and Industry) competitiveness cluster and the CNRS via the Federation for Research on Solar Energy (FédEsol) have jointed forces once again to co-host "The 2015 International Conference DERBI 2015" and "The 2015 JNES Congress" from 1-3 July on the University Campus in Perpignnan.

The combination of these two events will again provide the national community working in the field of the use and the rational exploitation of solar energy wih a forum for information and exchange accross the entire range of themes within the industry, thus facilitating intensive interaction between the scientific and industrial communities.

The main themes discussed at the conference :
- Photovoltaic
- Concentrated solar power
- Photo-processes
- Storage
- Interconnected solar building, cities and territories

For more information, visit www.jnes.fr

This year will see a particular focus on the theme of interconnected solar buildings, cities and territories. Over half of the global population now lives in urban areas urbanisation will cover 2/3 of the world population by 2030: this is a major challenge. In such a context, solar energy has an important role to play hrought the local production of energy which is then integrated into buildings and spread accross he urban territory. Buildings are thus in the process of becoming genuine energy nodes interconnected with networks of energy sources (electricity, heat, H2, gas) and urban mobility.

The scientific issues and technological and economic challenges are significant and must be addressed : understanding the solar potential in urban areas, the design of new buildings, the envelope components of energy producers, the expansion of functions, the control of building production based on climate and needs, the question of whether to distribute or centralise storage through the network connection anf/or conversion to other energy sources, urban developement and architecture and finally mobility planning.

The two days will be made up of round tables, discussion sessions, posters and thematic workshops, enabling attendees to play an active role and learn about the latest innovations, new technologies and operational solutions.
