Application of Solar Thermal Energy to Processes

Project description

Industrial process heating using solar energy

Heating for industrial processes accounts for most of the manufacturing sector’s energy demand. However, current heating systems have a number of limitations, such as the use of fossil fuels. The EU-funded ASTEP project aims to overcome these drawbacks by developing a novel solar heating for industrial processes (SHIP) concept. It will combine a rotary Fresnel solar collector and a thermal energy storage based on PCM with passive and active heat transfer enhancement techniques, which will be integrated through a control system to maintain continuous service. This innovative system will be able to cover a significant proportion of the process industry’s heat demand at temperatures and latitudes where current designs have failed. The project will provide a competitive alternative to fossil fuel consumption.
