Happy Holidays from the ASTEP team! We hope your holidays will be filled with joy and laughter through the New Year.
The 13th National and 4th International Conference on Engineering Thermodynamics (13CNIT) was held at the Universitat Jaume I between Wednesday, November 29, 2023, and Friday, December 1, 2023, under the slogan “Advances in Engineering Thermodynamics: The Key to Sustainable Development.” Mr. Rubén Abbas Cámara from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid represented the ASTEP project and presented
On the 14th of November,2023, ANALISIS-DSC, Technical University of Madrid, and Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena shared various aspects of the ASTEP project during the RED TES meeting in San Sebastián. Members of RedTES also shared their respective experiences and results from European projects related to Thermal Energy Storage. It has been a great opportunity to
On October 26th, 2023, ASTEP held its M42 General Assembly online, including the 19th Scientific & Technical Committee and 2nd Internal Workshop on Exploitation. This meeting took place after a positive evaluation of the project during the second reporting period. It focused on reviewing the first 42 months of our project, discussing our achievements, and
Crowdhelix is an Open Innovation platform that forges links between an international network of excellent researchers and innovating companies so that they can plan, deliver, and exploit pioneering collaborative projects and value chains. We’re excited to announce that we have published the two ASTEP Key Exploitable Results (KERs) on the Crowdhelix platform. You can find the
The main objective of ASTEP project is to successfully demonstrate the viability of applying solar thermal energy to partially cover heating, and heating and cooling demands on two different relevant industrial demo sites located on two different climate regions, and to further develop the implementation of solar thermal energy in industrial processes up to 400
ASTEP recently participated in ECOS2023, where our project partner Maria Esther Palacios Lorenzo from UNED delivered an insightful presentation titled “A high fidelity simulation model for the precise characterization of a solar air-cooled ammonia water absorption chiller at part load operation”. The conference aimed to foster knowledge sharing and facilitate discussions surrounding the performance, economics, and
As a result of the current high-cost energy situation, SMEs throughout Europe face significant pressure to decrease their energy consumption, enhance energy efficiency, and adopt carbon-neutral renewable energy sources as alternatives to environmentally harmful fossil fuels. This pressure extends not only to European SMEs but also to energy-intensive industries, cities, and municipalities, necessitating the development
Gianna Avgousti, eBOS R&D Project Manager presents the vision and accomplishments of the ASTEP project along with eBOS participation and contribution. ASTEP goal is to further develop the implementation of solar thermal energy in industrial processes, covering heating and cooling demands while testing the ASTEP concept at real operational conditions at two case studies facilities.
