Intersolar: NEP Solar wins Intersolar Award for process solar heat collector

NEP Solar's solar process heat collector has won the 2009 Intersolar Award in the solar thermal category.

The PolyTrough 1200 solar heat collector is centred on a polymeric reflector. The parabolic trough solar thermal collector is designed to generate heat at 120°C to 220°C for industrial processes as well as commercial solar cooling, large scale water heating and distributed power generation, NEP Solar says.

"Solar process heat is the sleeping giant of solar thermal. As a significant part of primary energy consumption stems from medium temperature industrial applications it is essential that solar process heat experiences a similar uptake in this sector as seen for solar domestic water heating in the residential area," says Antoine Millioud, CFO at NEP Solar, which is based in Australia and Switzerland.
