Praktikum / Werkstudent/-in: Entwicklung von solarthermischen Anlagen für industrielle Prozesse

Job description

You will support our team on the identification of the potential of using solar process heat in pre-identified industries (e.g. dairy processing, beverage production, fruit and vegetable processing) and their processes (e.g. washing and cleaning processes, pasteurization, drying and sterilization processes) as well as the implementation of case studies in selected sub-Sarah countries that have suitable direct solar radiation.

About the role

  • analysis of the heat consumption of selected industrial sectors
  • identification of suitable processes for the integration of solar heat
  • identification of possible integration points for solar heat in the existing processes
  • selection and planning of the required solar system technology
  • analysis of the economic viability of proposed solar systems
  • analysis of the expected economic and ecological advantages of these PV roof systems compared to the continued use of existing solutions
  • preparation of a tabular summary of the planned energy systems by industrial sector and country, including your technical and economic results

About you

  • Studies in the field of solar energy (CSP), energy technology, industrial engineering or similar
  • Initial experience in the field of solar thermal energy, CSP, photovoltaics and storage systems
  • Initial experience in the technical design of solar thermal and PV systems (e.g. using SAM, T*Sol, PV*Sol, PVsyst or similar)
  • Good English skills
  • Good PC user skills (MS Office, TEAM etc.)
