This workshop will provide an overview of the current technological developments in the field of materials and processes for thermal solar systems. Speakers from major European research institutes and companies will present recent disclosures and their applications in the production of renewable energy through concentrated solar power, photovoltaic, solar heating and cooling, and more. In particular, results from 5 large European research projects in the field of concentrated solar power will be presented and outlooks for the future of the industry discussed. Participants will be invited to discuss with each other to foster new business opportunities.
Speakers at the workshop are coming from the following organisations: CEA, Fertiberia, Tekniker, ENEA, CNRS, TSK, DLR, CENER and Leitat.
Participation to this event is free but registration is required. If you are interested in attending, go to https://in-power-project.eu/online-dissemination-event-materials-processes-for-thermal-solar-systems/
The IN-POWER project is a European project that aims at developing highly efficient concentrated solar power architectures such as innovative material solutions to increase the efficiency while simultaneously decreasing the energy production cost. Concretely, the project develops glass free mirrors, lighter mirror structures using composite materials, new absorber materials to convert light into heat as well as better energy storage materials allowing electricity dispatch for 24 hours. The project will validate these novel functional materials and new manufacturing processes will guarantee decreases in levelized costs of electricity below 0.10€ kWh beyond 2020.
