Forthcoming Research and Industry for European and National Development of SHIP (Solar Heat for Industrial Processes)

INES Formation & Evaluation and CEA DTBH are two of the partners in the consortium "FRIENDSHIP: Forthcoming Research and Industry for European and National Development of SHIP", a EUR 5 million project funded by the European H2020 program to ensure the deployment of more cost-effective solutions to increase the market for solar thermal for industrial processes.

The FRIENDSHIP project aims to demonstrate that solar heat can also be a reliable, user-friendly, high-quality and cost-effective resource to meet the heat needs of industrial sectors such as the chemical, metal, wood, plastic or textile industries. This requires the development of easy-to-use systems for heating and cooling, combining commercially available solar technologies and advanced thermal components at reduced costs.

The role of INES is based on training and stakeholder involvement. In this context, INES develops e-learning videos. The first videos are available here :

In order to adjust the development of this solution to the expectations of the industry, INES invites the actors of the chemical, metallurgy, wood, plastic or textile sectors to join the project by answering a study on the potential integration of this solution in their industrial processes.
