FH Upper AustriaResearch & Development


Main focus

The 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.
