In addition to its German locations, the Institute for Solar Research has for more than 30 years had a branch in Almería, in the south-east of Spain. Around 25 employees of the qualification department work here and have access to the test facilities of the Plataforma Solar de Almería (PSA) owned by the Spanish Center for Energy, Environmental Studies and Technology CIEMAT.
PSA is located on the edge of the Tabernas desert, an area with ideal climatic conditions for the research and development of concentrating solar technologies. It is the largest concentrating solar technology research, development and test center in Europe.
