Congratulations to ESTIF member, winner of the Intersolar AWARD 2015 with an innovative solar collector field with plasma technology for steam generation

Date: 11 Jun 2015

ESTIF congratulates its member Ritter Energie- und Umwelttechnik GmbH & Co. KG, Ritter XL Solar GmbH, winner of the Intersolar 2015 Award in the Solar Projects in Europe category, as a strong partner in a challenging solar air conditioning project.

The solar air conditioning project won over the Intersolar AWARD panel with its solar collector field with plasma technology for generating steam due to its effective combination of new developments. A highly efficient vacuum tube collector forms the main component. Its special antireflective coating enables it to achieve impressive efficiency levels even at temperatures between 100°C and 150°C. Furthermore, the project deploys a tailored steam jet cooling device with a cooling capacity of 80 kW. The solution is complemented by a specially developed heat and cold storage system, which keeps operating conditions largely stable. The impressive solar thermal system is proof that solar energy is an effective, economic and environmentally friendly way of providing air conditioning, even under German weather conditions.
