Renewable Energy and Climate Science: Metrology and Technology Challenges in the Americas

Central American Metrology (CAMET) Workshop on Renewable Energy and Climate Science for the Americas    Metrology and Technology Challenges

The workshop was held in Guatemala City, on May 28 – 29, 2014. More than 200 people from the government, private sector and universities participated in this activity that sought to increase awareness about the importance of high quality measurements and standards as tools to advance renewable energy and climate science in the Americas. The discussions held during this activity enabled the identification of metrology areas where the CAMET region needs further training.




Workshop Objectives

  • Assess technology, measurements, and standards needs and existing capabilities of regions of the Americas
  • Increase awareness of Government agencies interested in technology infrastructure
  • Promote regional and international partnerships to share approaches and best tools to advance renewable energy and climate science in Central American countries
  • Identify measurements and standards training needs to accelerate deployment of renewable energy technologies while minimizing their impact on our climate
