Chile’s large potential for renewable energies

  • This topic was discussed during the workshop “Hydrogen: Water and Energy Security for Chile,” organized by the Faculty of Sciences and the international company of environmental technology Adaptec S.A. Participants in the activity included renowned experts in clean energy, water, and maritime industries, Government authorities, businesspeople and researchers. 



Researchers at Universidad de Santiago develop hydrogen-based technology

  • Dr Daniel Serafini and Dr Álvaro San Martín, both professors at the Department of Physics, have developed an innovative solution that allows to store energy as hydrogen. One of the advantages of this technology is that it is not intermittent as current non-conventional energy sources (NCES), like solar and wind energy. This project is a contribution of Universidad de Santiago de Chile to the energy industry.


University inaugurates solar thermal energy laboratory

  • The equipment was acquired with funds awarded to the Department of Chemical Engineering of Universidad de Santiago, in the context of the project “ Teacher Education and Training in Solar Thermal Energy” sponsored by the Ministry of Energy, the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), plus the active collaboration of ProCobre.
