Educational activity at schools

100-year of Sergey Korolev, 150-year of Edward Tsiolkovsky and 50-year of the first artificial Earth-satellite jubilees have stimulated us to start a new educational experimental project “Space technologies, ecology and clean energy in schools of the future” for Moscow schools in 2007. The essence of the project is to create an experimental educational platform on […]

Team training and field research

Each work group was composed by 01 professor and 04 Engineering and/or Physics students. The training course had included solar geometry concepts, solar collectors and storage tanks, small, medium and large systems functioning characteristics, attending to variable factors found at each location. With practice classes, students had learned how to use the field research Kit, […]

Entrepreneurial Training and Financing Plan Development

The potentially significant role of microcredit lending programs to foster sustainable energy and economic development in rural communities has been largely overlooked. It has been estimated [1] that there are 500 million economically active poor in the world, operating microenterprises and small businesses. Virtually all small businesses in rural Africa, including Mozambique, have no access […]

Input or output definition?

The selection of the input or the output method depends on the application of the data. Eurostat makes energy balances and therefore the energy input of a conversion process is seen as the energy production. This is in line with the method for e. g. biomass or coal. The output is useful if you want […]

Future projects

The first solar power plant was planned to be constructed in Iran in Yazd province. This project was defined according to the Iranian Policy for renewable technology deployment. Therefore, a 17MW solar power plant was planned. The project started in 2007 and it is an ISCC (Integrated Solar Combined Cycle System) solar power plant combined […]
