Solar and Energy Efficiency

IER’s Solar Energy and Energy Efficiency Section is currently integrated by staff of the research group of the University of Castilla-La Mancha Energy Efficiency and Thermal Systems (EnerSys). This group is composed by faculty people of the Mechanical Engineeering Department of the Engeneering School of Albacete and by hired staff.

  • Currently, the main lines of research of the group are mainly focused on the development of new thermal energy storage systems with granular solid materials in fixed and fluidized bed, both for low temperature (buildings applications) and high temperature (thermosolar plants), characterization and numerical simulation of new corrugated tube heat exchangers and the modeling, simulation and energetic optimization of different thermal equipment and systems, as well as buildings.
  • Regarding technical advice, the group offers its services to any company or institution that needs advice or studies related to energetic efficiency in buildings and industrial facilities, solar thermal technologies applied to buildings and thermal systems and multiphase flows.
