May 2012: Dr. Gilles Flamant on “Concentrated solar thermal energy, from lab research to industrial development”.

Dr. Gilles Flamant French researcher in the domain of solar energy gave a lecture at ICARE institute on 25th May on “Concentrated solar thermal energy, from lab research to industrial development”.

  About 60 persons, including ICARE students, professors and researchers, attended this first conference on renewable energy organized in cooperation with the French consulate in Wuhan. Gilles Flamant met researchers of HUST and talk about joint project in the domain of thermal energy, for the launching of ICARE research platform.
