Germany: Winners of Solarthermalworld.org Research Competition

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 3, 2013

The winners of the first Solarthermalworld.org Research Video Competition received their awards at the international conference SHC 2013 in Freiburg in September 2013. The first prize – an iPad mini - went to Christine Tillmann, R&D Engineer at the German Institute of Air Handling and Refrigeration, ILK, in Dresden for her video titled “Thermally-driven cold generation - air-cooled absorption chiller”. Daniel Mugnier (centre) from French company Tecsol accepted the prize on behalf of Tillmann, as both researchers cooperate within Task 48 of the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling programme headed by Mugnier. Jan Steinweg (left) from the German Institute for Solar Energy Research Hamelin (ISFH) came in second, with the prize being a free conference ticket. Together with his colleague Francis Kliem, they had produced a video explaining in clear words the relevance of “Pipe-internal Re-circulation in Storage Connections”  for tank efficiency and the measures to avoid it.
