SolarTech, the project proposed by ARES Research Unit managed by Luigi Crema, aim to move from research to the market a CSP solar energy technology able to provide electricity and thermal energy for residential and industrial applications.  

As result of the DIGESPO project, SOlartech is a  modular (1-3 kWe, 3-9 kWth) micro-Combined Heat and Power system, based on Concentrated Solar Power technology coupled to Stirling engines. The proposed solution can provide electricity and thermal energy sufficient to meet the needs of homes and small commercial and industrial buildings, but can be scaled for most energy-consuming systems.
