ASiC: Solar heating and cooling Cluster-News: December 2012
The Austrian Solar Innovation Centre is a research institution for thermal solar energy and photovoltaics. Research focuses on innovative solutions for solar heating and cooling, electric and storage solutions for solar energy, large solar thermal plants and the optimisation of solar collectors. In a current project called FlowTCS, a granular, thermo-chemical accumulator material is developed to realise compact loss-free solar thermal accumulators. Another project focuses on the research of sensor technologies for heat storage.
