High efficiency and reliability but also innovative, custom-designed concepts are decisive for the successful entry of solar thermal collectors and components in a competitive market. We support our industry partners from the research and development phase up to the testing and certification of new products.
We develop new materials, manufacturing techniques and collector designs. These include, e.g., stagnation-proof systems, collectors based on ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) and façade-integrated collectors. We assess the service lifetime of new materials and components using simulations as well as customized test sequences and equipment.
In our accredited TestLab Solar Thermal Systems, we perform product testing and offer certification according to national and international standards.
