Profile of institution, cluster or research
Name: Národné centrum pre výskum a aplikácie obnoviteľných zdrojov energie
Type: Public R&D institute
Street: Radlinského 2101/9
The Center's objective is to increase the research potential of the Slovak University of Technology (SUT) and the integration of scientific teams focused on new, environmentally acceptable renewable energy sources. The establishment of the center increases the quality of research and development and the innovation potential of the SUT as well as elimination of fragmented research at SUT. This will also strengthen the competitiveness and success of the SUT in international research.
The main subject of research in the field of renewable energy sources inlucdes biomass and solar energy. The biomass sector is mainly focused on the study of pyrolysis kinetics of thermal decomposition processes of polymers from renewable sources, with the consequent design of appropriate technological conditions for pyrolysis and gasification of selected polymeric materials and the analysis of pyrolysis products. In the field of solar energy will be emphasized optimization of solar tracking, power output conditioning, and accumulation of energy from plants based on renewable energy.
