Ayllu Solar is an initiative of SERC Chile (Solar Energy Research Center) that aims to create human capital to boost the sustainable development of urban and rural communities in the Arica and Parinacota region, through the use of solar energy, in order to contribute, from science, to improve the quality of life of its inhabitants.
Ayllu Solar iniciative
Based on solar energy, cost-effective and replicable in the main key areas for community development.
Develop capacities in the communities to make effective use of the solar energy solutions that will be generated.
Effective solutions, business models, support network, community involvement and an appropriate institutional framework.
This is a privileged region given the high levels of irradiation and its exceptional clarity, considering that the Atacama Desert has great potential for the production of electricity, heat and light based on solar energy. It is also an exceptional area for the study, development and testing of new solar technologies.
These characteristics are the main reasons why SERC Chile decided to implement this project, named Ayllu Solar, in the Arica and Parinacota region.
