Solar energy harvesting in Chile's desert
solution: added 14th May, 2019

AtaMos-TeC

Solar energy harvesting in Chile's desert

The Atacama Desert, located in northern part of Chile, has special conditions that need the development of technologies to allow an efficient solar energy generation. The area presents an average direct global radiation level of 3.500 kWh/m² per annum and an horizontal global radiation level of 2.500 kWh/m² per annum, one of the highest in the world. The solution is a new optimal solar technology to be used in the Atacama Desert. The development includes new materials to resist high radiation levels, a bifacial photovoltaic panel to take advantage of the radiation and the ground and new methods for operation and maintenance considering the lack of water in the desert.

Solar service for urban multi-tenant buildings
solution: added 14th May, 2019

EINHUNDERT Energie GmbH

Solar service for urban multi-tenant buildings

EINHUNDERT Energie deliver solar power as a service with digital metering services to multi-tenant and commercial buildings. As well as offering solar power for multi-tenant-buildings EINHUNDERT Energie has an app that unites and visualizes digital metering data (energy, heat, water). The German “Energiewende” (energy transition) is therefore made accessible to millions of people living or working in rental and shared spaces, giving access to clean technology as a service.

Liquid organic H₂ carriers for H₂ logistics
solution: added 14th May, 2019

Hydrogenious Technologies GmbH

Liquid organic H₂ carriers for H₂ logistics

Hydrogen (H₂) is the energy vector of the future. Although it can be used in many industrial sectors, its current solutions for storage and transportation are hazardous and inefficient. Hydrogenious GmbH have developed an alternative technology for H₂ storage and transportation–liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) technology. H₂ is chemically bonded to a stable carrier liquid. Thus, H₂ loses its explosive character and can be stored and transported in the well-known and already existing oil infrastructures. Hydrogenious claims that LOHC is the key to a viable H₂ society.

Modular solar system and DC micro-grid for off-grid applications
solution: added 14th May, 2019

SolarWorX UG

Modular solar system and DC micro-grid for off-grid applications

SolarWorXUG has developed a modular solar solution for households and small businesses in off-grid areas. Each system can accommodate a 80Wh or 160 Wh battery and two 50W solar panels. Individual systems can be interconnected with their DC micro-grid modules so that energy-intense appliances, such as milling machines, can be powered and the security of supply for each connected household is increased.
