Collector laboratory test in Germany


The newly constructed FRESH NRG collector will be tested at Fraunhofer ISE according to the applicable test procedures of EN 12975 and other relevant testing procedures (i.e. developed during the new IEA SHC / SolarPaces Task 49 and other on going activities.). This laboratory test will lead to a determined collector efficiency with a target efficiency above 50% at 250°C for industrial use.


In particular, the detailed laboratory analysis of the FRESH NRG collector will provide an essential pre-requisite for the general certification of medium temperature concentrating collectors (particularly of Fresnel collectors), which in turn will remove a great obstacle for credibility of this technology to the eyes of industrial clients and it will also enable concentrating collectors to gain access to certification-linked Government incentives from which until today they have been excluded.
