Senergy demonstrator

Funder: Invest NI
Duration: 15 October 2016 – 31 August 2018
Staff Involved: Dr Aggelos Zacharopoulos, Dr Jayanta Mondol and Dr Mervyn Smyth

The Senergy solar thermal collector is a low cost polymer system with incorporated Carbon Nano-Tubes (CNTs) for improved thermal performance and mechanical strength. The project aims to demonstrate the Senergy technology as an innovative and cost-effective solution for building integration which can provide a high share of heating supplied from solar energy. Through long term performance evaluation in realistic conditions and detailed techno-economic analysis of a Senergy collector array the project will advance the technology to near commercialisation (TRL 7) to form a low-risk investment proposition
