Activity description

The Institute is performing some research activities in support of the high temperature solar energy program endeavoured by ENEA. In particular, the thermal and mechanical testing of special coatings for solar collectors is performed in the laboratories of the Institute along with the radiation heat transfer analysis. Also, the full thermal-fluid dynamic characterization of the process fluid for solar receivers is in progress on a large facility called MOSE.
