MSc. Solar Energy Engineering

First of all you always have to look up: where are the future topics which are interesting? And renewables definitely! This will change the world but we have to understand that we have to deliver or develop the technology for that and that’s our course about. The special thing about Freiburg is that it’s a…

Australia’s Energy Security – 24/7 Concentrated Solar Thermal Power plus Molten Salt Storage (CSP+)

Australia’s Energy Security – 24/7 Concentrated Solar Thermal Power plus Molten Salt Storage (CSP+)

The problem with renewable energy is the lack of continuous supply: solar power only when it’s sunny, wind power only when it’s windy and wave power when the sea’s not too rough. I’m Russell Beard and I’ve come to the south of Spain to visit Gemasolar, the first solar power-tower station that can produce electricity…

The New Economy: Renewable energy is a growing industry in Israel, and is important also from a strategic viewpoint. Being able to produce energy from clean sources would liberate the country from its political and financial dependence on its neighbours’ oil and natural gas supplies. With me to discuss how the sector is developing is…

New solar system for improved energy-efficiency

New solar system for improved energy-efficiency

Finding creative solutions to energy issues and energy – efficient buildings has become a major priority for Europe in recent years. Today simple, non-polluting technologies are deployed quickly. This industrial building in Malta hosts the prototype of an EU-funded optical system developed in the framework of the European project DiGeSPo. Its Concentrated-solar technology will be…
