The SUNSON project will promote net-zero emission electrification through a smart combination of advanced concentration solar power with ultra-high temperature storage system for thermophotovoltaic generation. Increasing the European industrial leadership in key renewable energy integration enabling the transition to a net-zero emission economy by 2050.
Design and development of a solar to heat to power prototype as feasibility and scientific proof of a novel power generation technology from solar radiation .
Design and development of a suitable thermal storage system based on phase change materials to be integrated into the SUNSON-BOX.
Flagship demonstration of a breakthrough and compact system (the SUNSON-BOX) integrating renewable energy sources for power generation based on concentration solar power, phase change materials
-storage and thermophotovoltaic conversion.
Development of a digital intelligence support system (the SUNSON-TOOL) to optimise the renewable energy sources integration within the energy system and assess the feasibility and replicability of the SUNSON solutions.
Proof of sustainability of the SUNSON solutions by a holistic assessment of environmental, technical, social and economic feasibility
Exploitation, Dissemination and Communication of the knowledge and results generated in SUNSON –Innovations.
