Flexible and adaptable illuminators for the automotive market will be developed. Thin films of electro-emitting organic materials will be studied and used as new light sources. Als0, integration with suitable micro-optics.
Increasing green electricity production and the optimal use of primary sources of energy by improving the availability, flexibility and maintainability of hydro turbines, storage pumps and pump turbines.
To study and improve if necessary the overall stability of low chemical vapour deposition (lp-cvd) zno layers incorporated within encapsulated thin-film silicon solar cells.
Development of appropriate heating and cooling devices for the decentralised energetic use of waste biomass from agriculture and forestry in central and eastern europe.
Industrial production process of thin wafers, 150 to 200 micrometers, through a silicon ribbon on a sacrificial carbon template (rst technology). A back contact solar cell process based on thin silicon ribbons will be developed and tested.
Developing very cheap photovoltaic cells based on dye sensitised titanium dioxide chemistry. The product would be a glass-metal foil or glass-plastic sandwich, half the weight of a silicon product of a similar size.
The aim is to optimise the innovative galvanic production technology for positive electrodes, which was developed by dsl dresden, to increase the techno-economic competitiveness of industrial batteries.
To develop a methodology for engineering safe pump-turbines meeting the challenging requirements of the hydropower market. Discovery experiments will be conducted with the hydrodyna pump-turbine model, and a computing methodology will be developed and validated with experiments.
Orionsolar will be improving their 15cm x 15cm single cell design and assembly to give 7% efficient pv dye cell modules in fully scaled-up manufacturing processes. Solaronix will be scaling up their narrow strip monolithic module design to 30cm x 30cm and then 90cm x 60cm size with 6% efficiency.
Combustion carbon dioxide from municipal waste incinerators will be converted into micro-algal biomass. Controlled enhancement of algal starch and lipid synthesis enables exploitation of the biomass as a raw material for biofuel production.
