When facing the challenges of climate change and a lack of resources, it is of the utmost importance to reconcile technology and environment. Technological progress and environmental protection are no longer a contradiction in terms. Intelligent technologies for efficient, environmentally-friendly, and cost-effective electricity generation are in demand.
Solar-thermal power plants are able to replace conventional, fossil-fuel-based power plants. They can generate cost-effective electricity on demand using heat energy captured from solar radiation.
Flagsol focuses on parabolic trough power plants. Other technologies within the field of renewable energy are closely monitored by Solar Millennium, in particular where solar thermal power plants are concerned. Furthermore, the technology subsidiary Smagsol GmbH is also pursuing the goal of developing solar chimney power plants for market readiness.
