InSun project aims to demonstrate the reliability and efficiency of three different collector technologies suitable for industrial process heat supply in different climatic regions. Three different types of collectors are compared, from improved flat-plate collectors for supply temperatures of up to 95°C in moderate northern Europe climate, to tracked concentrating collectors (linear Fresnel collectors and parabolic trough collectors) for supplying temperatures between 160 and 250°C in hot and dry Mediterranean climate in Italy and Spain.
The InSun consortium consists of two research institutes (ZAFH.NET, Germany and EURAC Italy), two collector producers (SOLTIGUA, Italy and SOLERA, Germany), one large scale solar thermal system engineering and installation company providing turnkey solutions (SOLID Austria) and three demonstration partners (Berger, Austria, Laterizi Gambettola SRL in Italy and Lacteas Cobreras in Spain).
The task of our Institute within InSun focus on the analysis of monitoring data. The performance of the three systems installed will be monitored by the researchers through the whole project elaboration period, allowing reliable data assessment and numerical models validation.
