Seminar on Innovation, Science and Technology for an Energy Efficient Development in Central America.

     
This seminar is part of the activities of the Energy Efficiency Working Group. The Secretary of Energy (SENER) of Mexico, the International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Technological Institute of Costa Rica and the National University of Costa Rica, with support from the Department of Sustainable Development of the Organization of American States (OAS), joined efforts with the aim of analyzing the issue of developing energy efficiency in Central America.

The seminar aims to identify major projects and areas of scientific and technological research taking place Central America that are related to energy efficiency and renewable energy. Participants are encouraged to identify areas for regional cooperation in scientific and technological research related to energy efficiency and renewable energy and identify needs and opportunities for funding research projects in science and technology in this areas.
