En nuestro continuo intento por colaborar en la mejora del mundo que nos rodea, seguimos invirtiendo tiempo y neuronas en investigar cómo mejorar la eficiencia de la energía que usamos. Para ello contamos con la financiación de programas nacionales e internacionales que nos apoyan en nuestros desarrollos. Un millón de gracias a las siguientes instituciones que nos permiten seguir trabajando en esta línea:

  • Horizon 2020: Modular High Concentration Solar Configuration - MOSAIC (Research and Innovation Action, Grant Agreement nº 727402). Participant https://mosaic-h2020.eu/
  • NNO-ESPAMAROC ENERGY CDTI-IRE: New Concrete Based Tank Design For Molten Salt Thermal Energy Storage - TANKSUN (Spain – Morocco Bilateral R&D Project). Cofounded by CDTI, FEDER and Iresen. Coordinator
  • H2020: Small-Scale Solar Thermal Combined Cycle - POLYPHEM (Research and Innovation Action, Grant Agreement nº 764048). Subcontractor https://www.polyphem-project.eu/
