Research project "ALUMIR" - researchers from DLR and CIEMAT developed new methodology for accelerated aging of aluminum solar mirrors
Monday, 9 May 2016
Scientists at the DLR Institute of Solar Research and the Spanish research center CIEMAT ended successfully a three-year trial period for the aging behavior of different protective coatings on aluminum mirrors and derived a methodology for accelerated aging. Aluminium-based solar mirrors can be a cost-effective alternative to traditional solar glass mirrors. In spite of the lower reflectance, their good ductility make aluminum reflectors especially well suited for collectors in process heat applications or for complex collector geometries.
Vorbild für Energieversorger in Indien: DLR-Test- und Qualifizierungslabor für Solarkraftwerke
Monday, 25 January 2016
The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) is supporting the Indian power provider NTPC in its project to establish a research centre to test and develop solar power plants and their components. DLR researchers are supplying systems, measurement equipment and expertise, and are helping to select suitable power plant locations. The recently launched project will run for three years and is supported by the Kreditanstalt Development Bank (KfW) with funds provided by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety.
