Cologne Solar Colloquium 2024: Solar Thermal Energy on the Rise – Perspectives for Heat Transition and Sustainable Fuels

26. June 2024 @ 10:00 - 17:15

Public | Free

The event will highlight the increasing importance of solar thermal energy as a key technology for the heat transition. It will focus on the potential of solar thermal energy for heat generation in various areas of application and its role in the production of sustainable fuels.

The programme shows the wide range of possible applications for concentrating solar technologies.

Here is an excerpt:

  • Concentrated solar thermal energy for the heat transition – experience from the field
    Speaker: Joachim Krüger, European Solar Thermal Energy Association ESTELA
  • Qualification and measurement technology for the solar industry
    Speaker: Dr.-Ing. Peter Heller, Institute of Solar Research
  • DLR test facilities for the large-scale development of CST components
    Speaker: Dr.-Ing. Kai Wieghardt, Institute of Solar Research
  • The defossilisation of the chemical industry
    Speaker: t.b.d.
  • Solar Fuels: Overview of solar thermochemical cycles
    Speaker: Natalie Monnerie, Institute of Future Fuels
  • Experimental demonstration of solar chemical processes and components
    Speaker: Dr.-Ing. Martina Neises-von Puttkamer, Institute of Future Fuels
  • DAWN – The world’s first industrial plant for the production of solar fuel
    Speaker: Patrick Hilger, Synhelion Germany

A highlight at the end of the day is a visit to Synhelion’s DAWN plant in the Brainergy Park Jülich and a visit to the Jülich solar towers.

Further information is available on the website and on LinkedIn.

The event will be held in presence and in English.
