Novel and efficient technologies are being developed for the production of solar fuels from H2O and CO2.
Fundamental research focusses on heat/mass transport phenomena, multi-phase reacting flows, and applied thermodynamic/kinetic analyses.
Clean production and recycling of energy-intensive materials (e.g. metals) use concentrated solar energy as the source of high-temperature process heat.
Advanced solar receiver concepts operate at high temperatures/high radiative fluxes for maximizing efficiency and reducing cost of solar electricity.
Sensible, latent, and thermochemical heat storage systems are designed for around-the-clock dispatchability of solar electricity and for adiabatic compressed-air energy storage.
