Main focus

ASIC conducts research and development projects in the field of renewable energy technologies and more specifically in the field of solar technology.

The following topics are covered:

  • Development of new collectors
  • Optimisation of existing collectors
  • General solar thermal systems
  • Large solar thermal plants
  • (Solar) thermally driven cooling systems
  • Thermal accumulators
  • Photovoltaics
  • Energy management

A solar laboratory, in which a wide range of measurement equipment can be used, is also provided for the implementation of research projects. Collector performance tests according to ÖNORM EN ISO 9806 und EN 12075-1 can be carried out in the indoor and outdoor measuring station. The optical characteristics (transmission, absorption, etc.) of collector components can be measured in the optical laboratory.
