MTET - High-Temperature Thermal Technologies

Topic 4, High-Temperature Thermal Technologies, centers on the provision, storage and utilization of high-temperature heat from the combustion of renewable energy sources, from solar energy or from geothermal sources. To cover the electrical residual load and to provide sustainable heat for industry and households, we aim to exploit load and fuel-flexible gas turbines, advanced concentrating solar technologies, geothermal heat extraction, high-temperature heat pumps, and tailor-made thermal energy storage systems.
