Rebecca Mitchell works at NREL on algorithms to determine error of heliostats and she’s also creating a database on CSP education related materials. During the first networking event on March 9, 2023, she met with many CSP experts, who could provide her materials for her database. Also, Dr. Natalie Hanrieder from DLR works with meteorological data and kindly offered to share the collected data on DNI with other participants who do the simulation and modeling.
First networking event of Women+ in Concentrated Solar
These are just a few examples of successful matchmaking during this networking event, where 22 members of the CSP community got to know each other and had a chance to talk about their work and interests. This networking event is a great opportunity to establish an international collaboration, learn more about the current work of colleagues and find useful connections.
The networking event will happen on March 15 @ 12 PM CET, which we organize especially for Asia, Oceania, Africa and Europe time zones. (Find your time here) If you missed your chance on the 9th, you can still connect on the 15th to get to know more experts from Asia, Oceania, Europe, and Africa.

Women+ in Concentrated Solar is a group for women and underrepresented genders working in the sector of concentrated solar technologies, created to support, bring visibility and increase the participation of underrepresented genders in this sector in a way that includes diverse backgrounds, attitudes, and perspectives. One of the tools which we created to promote women and underrepresented genders in CSP is an expert database, where anyone can find a suitable CSP expert to bring more diversity for a conference, webinar or project.
