APPLIED RESEARCH HOW CAN WE INTEGRATE SOLAR HEAT TO MODERN TRANSFORMATION PROCESSES ?
We are actively participating in the development of new technologies in order to accelerate the transition to renewable energies. We are active in three ways:
The sharing of measurement data
The data we collect is a valuable source of information as it is collected under real-world conditions rather than in the laboratory. Information such as the instantaneous efficiency of the collectors in operation, the overall efficiency and the energy output of an installation provides a better understanding of what solar installations can do as well as their current limitations.
Where our customers allow we share our measurement data so that it can be used by students, research groups and developers around the world. Visit the real-time data section to see the projects that participate in information sharing. We will share information with your organization even if you are a competitor but will ask to be informed of your work and findings.
Contact us to know more about our data sharing initiative.
The deployment of test sites
Each year, we participate in several experiments aimed at qualifying solar heat production for different applications. Among our most recent partnerships, we find:
• The Helios platform of the University of Sherbrooke (Canada)
Applied research and technological development
Three areas of research and development interest us.
• Seawater desalination and “zero liquid discharge” processes
• Drying of industrial, municipal and agricultural residues
• Heat storage
We are always looking for partners to team up. Contact us!
