Renewable Energies

According to the present needs of the “Energiewende”, work in our institute is dedicated to solar power. It concerns direct conversion of solar energy into electricity with AMTEC and the storage of thermal energy in a thermocline storage tank. On a long range, a combination of both may lead to continuous 24/7 use of solar power and production of electricity in a suitable power station.
