renewables onsite

Welcome to Industrial Solar GmbH

  • We reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions by integrating renewables into the energy supply of our clients
  • Our projects combine engineering expertise with efficient technologies that use energy from renewable sources on site
  • We offer our clients the solutions either as provision of technology or, in cooperation with financing partners, as energy purchase agreements

The Challenge: Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector

Infographic Solar Process Heat in Industry

 

Globally, the industrial sector is responsible for one-third of the total energy consumption. Since the industrial production is expected to grow up to 400% until 2050, it will become the sector that emits most CO2.

  

In the industry, the energy demand for heating is three times as big as for electricity. Currently, this demand is still mostly met by fossil fuels.

The Solution: Solar Energy for Process Heating and Cooling

Solar technologies can provide energy for process heating and cooling. Thereby, the fuel demand, energy costs and CO2 emissons are cut and the industry becomes more competitive and sustainable.

 

We use concentrating solar technologies such as Fresnel collectors as well as other energy efficient technologies to reduce our clients' fuel consumption. Our Fresnel collector supplies temperatures of up to 400°C in the power range from 500 kW to 20 MW at pressures of up to 120 bar and can be integrated into existing energy systems. 

Industrial Solar: Expertise and Reliability

We have installed the largest number of projects with Fresnel collectors worldwide, have gathered experience in several countries and industries, and internationally recognized companies and brands are among our clients.

 

Besides that, our technology and projects have been awarded several prizes, as for instance the European Solar Prize, the 'Solar Impulse Efficient Solution' Label and the IKU Award. 

Be Part of the Solution!
