Polymer Materials Make Solar Thermal Systems More Sustainable – Researchers Prove Environmental and Economic Potential
Feb 25, 2015

Within the ExKoll project, the Durability Analysis Group at Fraunhofer ISE investigated the economic feasibility of polymer collectors and performed life-cycle analyses. The experts found that in comparison to standard flat collectors, mass-produced polymer collectors perform better economically and ecologically.

Hybrid Storage Offers Great Potential

Fraunhofer ISE has successfully tested a new concept called “hybrid storage.” In an agent-based operating system (ABOS), thousands of batteries and heat storage systems are aggregated to a virtual storage system. As decentralized control systems the agents coordinate the individual local storage operation. The storage capacity is aggregated for an integrated distribution grid operation. The agent-based operation-system has been developed and tested within the SmartEnergyLab at Fraunhofer ISE.
