IN POWER

The benefits of high efficiency concentrated solar power (CSP) and photovoltaic (PV) are well known: environmental protection, economic growth, job creation, energy security. Those technologies can only be applied properly in regions with annual mean radiation values higher than 1750 kWh/m2 per year. CSP has advantages in front of PV: possible 24h continuous electricity production,… Read More »

Green INSTRUCT

The Green INSTRUCT project will develop a prefabricated modular structural building block that is superior to conventional precast reinforced concrete panels by virtue of its reduced weight, improved acoustic and thermal performance and multiple functionalities. The Green INSTRUCT block consists of over 70% of CDW in weight. The Green INSTRUCT project will: achieve sustainability and… Read More »

ENERGY KEEPER

The aim idea of EnergyKeeper is to allow individual users and urban communities in remote (isolated) areas to benefit from a local low carbon economy. The project will enable the communities and individual users to participate in the smart grid context, it will develop an intelligent storage solution optimizing the communities demand and supply. The… Read More »

MIDES

MIDES -Microbial Desalination for Low Energy Drinking Water   Shortage of fresh water has become one of the major challenges for societies all over the world. Water desalination offers an opportunity to significantly increase the freshwater supply for drinking, industrial use and irrigation. All current desalination technologies require significant electrical or thermal energy, with today’s… Read More »

RICAS2020

RICAS2020 will provide an innovative design concept of an Underground Research Infrastructure to develop technologies by which the storage of very high amounts of “green” energy will be possible. The big advantage of the new design concept will be the independence from the encountered geological conditions. This means that energy will be directly stored at… Read More »

ALION

High Specific Energy Aluminium-ion rechargable decentralised electricity generation sources   The overall objective of the ALION project is to develop aluminium-ion battery technology for energy storage application in decentralised electricity generation sources. ALION pursues an integral approach comprising electroactive materials based on “rocking chair” mechanism, robust ionic liquid-based electrolytes as well as novel cell and… Read More »
