Event Organizer: Conexio GmbH
Event Location: Kloster Banz, Bad Staffelstein

At the symposium, the speakers will present current developments in solar thermal components and systems.  The use of solar thermal energy in buildings, in trade and industry and in industrial processes, as well as for supplying heat to neighbourhoods, are important topics at the symposium. One focus will be on complete systems for heat supply, i.e. the combination of solar thermal energy with innovative heat generators, preferably operated with regenerative energy sources. These include heat pumps, combined heat and power plants, fuel cells and biomass boilers. Other important aspects are new solutions and technologies for thermal energy storage.

Industry workshop: cost reduction and quality assurance

An industrial workshop will be held on 21 May as part of the symposium. Here the researchers present the results of the projects KoST, TEWIsol and ZeKon in-situ. These projects are supported by the BMWi and the participating industry partners and associations. The event points in detail:

  • Cost reduction in solar thermal energy through standardized components and interfaces - Project KoST (Dr. Stephan Fischer and Stephan Bachmann, IGTE, University of Stuttgart; Konstantin Geimer, Fraunhofer ISE, Freiburg)
  • Cost reduction of solar thermal systems through value analysis, process cost analysis and energy analysis - TEWIsol project (Dr. Wolfgang Kramer and Axel Oliva, Fraunhofer ISE, Freiburg)
  • Performance evaluation of solar collectors in the field - Project ZeKon in-situ (Sven Fahr and Stefan Mehnert, Fraunhofer ISE, Freiburg)
