Volateq GmbH was founded in 2020 by Dr. Christoph Prahl, Wolfgang Reinalter and Anne Schlierbach from the DLR Institute for Solar Research. The founding team has already been active in research and development for the solar industry for many years. More than 10 years ago, the paths of the three crossed in sunny Almería in southern Spain, where they worked together on research projects and industrial contracts at the Plataforma Solar De Almeria (PSA). They saw potential to improve solar energy performance and founded their start-up in autumn 2020.
Dr.-Ing Lars Amsbeck along with Dr.-Ing. Reiner Buck and Dr.-Ing. Eckhard Lüpfert founded HelioHeat GmbH as a company from the DLR Institute for Solar Research. The young high-tech start-up based in Offenburg develops system components that make it possible to supply uninterrupted and controlled regenerative energy for the production of electricity as well as high and low temperature process heat for industrial procedures.
CSP Services GmbH
CSP Services GmbH was founded in Cologne in 2007 as a spin-off of the solar research of the DLR Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics. The company implements development results, knowledge and experience of DLR in industrial applications, but also researches and develops with its own workforce. The product spectrum ranges from quality assurance for solar thermal power plants to the optimisation of heat and power yield.
Lumoview Building Analytics GmbH
The DLR spin-off company Lumoview Building Analytics GmbH was founded in February 2019 by Dr.-Ing. Silvan Siegrist, Dr.-Ing. Arne Tiddens and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bernhard Hoffschmidt. The company, based in Cologne, has developed a measurement system that identifies inefficiencies in thermal insulation easily and quickly. Based on collected data, the system creates 3D models and floor plans of buildings.
Heliokon GmbH was founded in April 2016 as corporate foundation of the DLR Institute of Solar Research. The company, initiated by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bernhard Hoffschmidt together with Patrick Hilger, develops innovative system solutions for solar thermal technologies. Heliokon aims to transfer the scientific expertise available at the Institute of Solar Research into practical implementation.
