The 2nd Southern African Solar Energy Conference (SASEC 2014) will be held from the 27th to the 29th of January 2014 at the Pine Lodge Resort and Conference Centre, Nelson Mandela Bay. The conference will focus on Photovoltaic (PV) and Solar Thermal technology, systems and applications. The conference will provide the opportunity for solar energy researchers, engineers, technologists and individuals to share and discuss recent developments in their field.

The conference will start on the Monday morning with a plenary session where after the presentations will split into PV, Solar Thermal and Solar Resource tracks. Tuesday will follow a similar programme with a Conference Dinner in the evening. The conference will end lunchtime on the Wednesday.

The Conference will have a specific focus on research, technology development and deployment of solar energy in the South African context shared with experiences from other parts of the world. To benefit the Solar Energy community as a whole, engineers and scientists from academia and industry are encouraged to share their on-going and completed research, technology developments and experiences with technology deployment at the conference.

Presentation at the conference will be subject to acceptance of an abstract. The review process will consist of an initial review of one-page abstracts followed by a rigorous review of the complete papers. Comprehensive conference proceedings, with an allocated ISBN number, will be published.
