Start of the European Project “RAISELIFE” to Enhance the Lifetime of Materials for Concentrated Solar Power


In Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plants, the quality and durability of the employed functional materials have a high impact on the cost of the produced solar heat or electricity. Eleven European partners from the R&D sector, universities and industry affiliated together with the Moroccan Research Institute of MASCIR and the Israeli company of BrightSource Industries Israel to work during the next 4 years on improving the lifetime of key materials used in CSP.

The project is funded by the European Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and is coordinated by DLR Institute of Solar Research.
