Intelligent Thermal Energy Systems

The decarbonization of the industrial energy matrix requires the integration of clean energy sources, such as wind and solar thermal, among others, which can be implemented at a competitive cost and a high level of availability. Seventy-four percent of the energy consumed at the industrial level corresponds to heat, which increases the need to develop technologies that can deliver thermal energy with the highest possible level of efficiency.


FCR-CSET has high-level computational capabilities and a team of research engineers with expertise in the analysis of energy systems integrated to industrial processes, data analysis, sensorization, shading analysis, among other critical technical capabilities in this type of projects.
