Agricultural University of Athens, (AUA) is RTD performer and project
coordinator. It will contribute to the different stages of the proposed project
as defined in the work programme. AUA has a wide experience in the field of
renewable energy application such as photovoltaics applications for rural
electrification, water pumping, refrigeration, solar heating etc. In addition it
has considerable experience in solar thermal systems such as solar collectors’
applications and heat pumps as well as in desalination technologies.
R&D activities and experience
over 20 years, the Farm Structures Laboratory of AUA is active in the field of
renewable energies applications in rural areas. In the framework of these
efforts, the Department has been involved in several renewable energy activities
that provide it large experience.
In the proposed project the following scientists from the staff of the Dept. of Agricultural Engineering of AUA will be involved:
Prof. Spyros Kyritsis, Full professor at AUA, specialist on energy modelling and applications. He has published many papers in refereed scientific journals and proceedings of international congresses.
Theophanis Lolos, Msc. Chemical engineering, implication in more than 30 projects. Specialised on water treatment, purification and distribution. He has collaborated with Agricultural University of Athens in more than 12 research projects on Renewable an Environment.
Dr. Efstratios Soubassakis, Mechanical Engineer, specialised in thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer and modelling of thermal plants.
