  • Flyer: Quality Assurance and Yield Optimization for Solar Power Plants

    August 2015 | Language: englisch

    Over the last two decades Fraunhofer ISE has made important contributions to the quality assurance of PV and solar thermal power plants. We offer quality assessments for every stage of PV or solar thermal power plant projects – from planning and design up to long-term operation.

    Flyer: Outdoor Weathering in Different Climates

    May 2015 | Language: english

    The climatic conditions affecting solar systems vary considerably from location to location, resulting in different requirements for materials and components of PV modules and thermal collectors. Fraunhofer ISE operates outdoor test sites in four different climates in order to assess the effects of different weathering conditions on the reliability of PV modules and thermal collectors.

    Flyer: Solar Thermal Façades

    December 2014 | Language: english

    Building-integrated solar thermal systems (BIST) save costs in comparison to constructing the building envelope and a solar thermal system separately by reducing material and labor expenditure. Innovative multifunctional BIST components simultaneously provide solar thermal yield, visual transparency and solar control. Together with project partners, Fraunhofer ISE develops new, innovative solutions for Solar Thermal Façades.

    Flyer: Micro- and Nano- Structured Surfaces

    June 2013 | Language: englisch

    Micro- and nanostructured surfaces can fulfill a variety of different functions. An important application field is photon management in optical systems. The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE advances the fundamental understanding of the optics of microstructured components, modeling, design, production as well as replication and characterization of large-area micro- and nanostructures.

    Brochure: Applied Optics and Functional Surfaces

    2011| Language: english

    R&D in optical methods is required in many market segments of solar technologies, e. g. in solar cells, windows and façades, solar thermal collectors and concentrator systems. Our expertise is similarly needed in non-solar applications such as lighting and display technology.

    Brochure: Solar Thermal Technology

    2011 | Language: english

    Solar thermal systems with different operating temperatures are used in building technology, industry or on outdoor solar fields. The solar heat produced (as water, air, steam) can be used directly or to generate electricity by means of heat engines or to produce cold by means of thermal chillers.
