INSHIP: Integrating National Research Agendas on Solar Heat for Industrial Processes

This research project scope aims at the definition of an ECRIA (European Common Research and Innovation Agenda) engaging major European research institutions with activities on Solar Heat for Industrial Processes (SHIP) into an integrated structure to consolidate existing EU and national resources.
INSHIP aims to develop coordinated R&D activities (TRLs 2-5) with the ambition of progressing SHIP beyond the state-of-the-art through:
 - An easier integration of low and medium temperature technologies suiting the operation, durability and reliability requirements of industrial end users
 - Expanding the range of SHIP applications to the EI sector through the development of suitable process embedded solar concentrating technologies
 - Overcoming the present barrier of applications only in the low and medium temperature ranges
 - Increasing the synergies within industrial parks through centralized heat distribution networks and exploiting the potential synergies of these networks with district heating and with the electricity grid.
