CRES - Solar Thermal Systems Department is engaged in designing, developing and monitoring of innovative solar thermal systems. It has participated in a large number of European, national and international projects, as a coordinator or partner.

Main expertise areas are focused on the following sectors:

A. Solar Thermal Systems
Large scale solar thermal systems for:

  • Sanitary hot water
  • Solar assisted heating
  • Solar air conditioning
  • Air systems (solar systems with air collectors, solar assisted heat pumps)
  • Hybrid systems with solar and another RES or RUE technology (solar combined with biomass boilers, helio-geothermal systems for cooling and heating, solar systems
  • Solar Combi systems (solar systems for combined hot water and space heating)
Concentrated solar thermal systems for:
  • Industrial purposes
  • Steam production
  • Electricity generation
  • Desalination
Services for the above mentioned solar thermal systems:
  • Solar potential analysis
  • Conceptual design, pre-design/design studies for commercial application and for pilot and demonstration plants
  • Modelling and Dynamic simulations
  • Commissioning
  • Monitoring and Performance evaluation
  • Dissemination actions of the above mention technologies tailored to specific target group buildings (hotels, hospitals, industry, public buildings)
B. Solar Thermal Collectors
  • Solar potential analysis
  • Flat plate collectors
  • Vacuum Tube Collectors
  • Concentrating solar collectors
Services for the above mentioned solar thermal products
