CSERS Libya visits Kipp & Zonen for training on solar radiation measurement

KIPP & ZONEN wrote on May 11, 2014: CSERS stands for the Centre for Solar Energy Research and Studies in Tripoli, Libya. In March we had the pleasure to welcome three representatives of CSERS for a customised training course on solar radiation, its measurement, Kipp & Zonen products and their applications in solar energy. They already work with a range of Kipp & Zonen instruments and have recently installed a SOLYS 2 sun tracker. CSERS is investigating a possible expansion of solar monitoring points across Libya.
