Descrizione:

The proposed MATS project aims at promoting the exploitation of concentrated solar energy through small and middle scale facilities, suitable to fulfil local requirements of power and heat, and easily to back-up with the renewable fuels locally already available or that can be expressly produced. The implementation of the project will allow to test the CSP (Concentrating Solar Power) technology in a location very advantageous with regard to the solar radiation rate as an example for the diffusion of this technology in other Mediterranean Countrie. Besides, it will represent the start-up for a development of specialized local industries. More in detail, the MATS project is focused on the innovative CSP technology developed by ENEA as an improvement of its Solar Thermodynamic technology based on molten salts as heat transfer fluid. This technology, referred as TREBIOS, allows combined heat and power production from solar source integrated with renewable fuels, such as biomass, biogas, industrial residues etc.

Attività svolta da ENEA:

L'ENEA coordina il progetto e svolge un'intesa attività di ricerca, sviluppo sperimentale e dimostrazione anche mediante una gestione basata su sistemi informatici avanzati, quali un sito web di ultima generazione, servizi di videoconferenza in ambiente di comunicazione COMM-Virtual world 3d ed e-learning di supporto alle attività di training previste.
