Doctoral students of SFERA-III partner institutions are cordially invited to participate in this year's Doctoral Colloquium in Cologne. The event will take place on the days 11-13 September and will be hosted by DLR. The subsequent summer school with the topic "Smart CSP - how smart tools, devices and software can help improve the design and operation of concentrating solar technologies" will take place on the days 14-15 September. Unlike the Doctoral Colloquium, the Summer School is open to a wide audience and is organized in hybrid mode. The program also includes a visit to the DLR solar facilities in Jülich on the afternoon of 13 September.

Solar tower power plants: a view from space
Wednesday, 18 January 2023
A change of perspective: What do solar tower power plants actually look like from the sun's perspective? The two German twin satellites of DLR TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X are currently providing an idea of this with spectacular new highlight images from space. They clearly show large heliostat fields and plants in Spain (Almería), South Africa and the USA, which convert concentrated solar radiation into electricity and thus make an important contribution to the expansion of renewable energies.
