Industrial Applications


Potential market size and environmental benefits make the use of solar heat in industrial applications a promising and vast area for future application of solar thermal systems. In Europe, the industrial and commercial sector account for about 28% of the overall energy consumption and 2/3 of this energy is used for heating applications. The Task 33 of the IEA-SHC / Annex 4 of Solar Paces showed that in most industrial processes low and medium temperature is needed. More than 60% of the heat demand in the industry requires process heat with temperatures below 250°C.


FRESH NRG will target a growing share (up to 30%) of RES (Renewable Energy Source) increase for solar thermal within the EU 27 countries by providing clearly valuable solutions to suitable industrial customers. 


The identified key applications for the FRESH NRG collector are:
