National Institute of Chemistry in Ljubljana showcased NorDan Solar at the 2016 MOS
MOS is one of the largest and most important trade fair events in Slovenia with 1 500 exhibitors from 35 countries and more than 125 000 visitors. A new feature this year was a Crossroads of Science and Economy, supported by the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport. This special part of the exhibition promoted cutting-edge technologies and new technological innovations and processes. National Institute of Chemistry in Ljubljana was one of several scientific institutions present at the stand. The institute has developed a special kind of color painting, TISS coatings, that will improve both efficiency and aesthetics of a solar collector. The NorDan Solar concept with solar collectors integrated in traditional window frames was used to illustrate state of the art solar collector solutions.
AventaSolar solar collector undergoing testing for verification of expected lifespan
Aventa recently visited the German research institute for solar energy - Fraunhofer ISE, in Freiburg - where our solar collectors have been a part of the experimental set-up for several years. The solar collectors are primarily undergoing accelerated aging tests, which will determine their lifespan under various conditions. Ad hoc testing of the collectors is also being carried as part of our product development programme.
Demonstration of Aventa Solar Technology in Copenhagen
Planning of pilot projects was on the agenda when the partners in the Nordic Built project “Active Roofs and Facades in Sustainable Renovation” met in Malmö recently. The goal is to show solutions for sustainable renovation that are possible to integrate in existing buildings with respect to both architecture, comfort and energy efficiency. The Aventa technology will be used at a demo-site at the Technological Institute near Copenhagen and most likely will also a CO2 neutral kindergarden In Copenhagen be equipped with building integrated solar collectors from Aventa.
BioSol represents a new concept for heat transfer from a stove into a water-based heating system, which combines high efficiency and negligible risks. A solar system is directly coupled to the heating system. The energy demand for space heating and hot water preparation can thereby be 100% covered by renewable energy in terms of firewood and solar energy.
