Michaela Meir, R&D manager from Aventa and leader of work package 3 in RELaTED project, explains at this video the solution that this Norwegian company is developing in this project.

Both the Spanish company IMAR and Aventa are developing solar collector systems for heating. Aventa’s innovation in RELaTED is that these collector systems are decentralized at the end-user side using the district heating network as storage. The final aim is to install the developed technologies at the RELaTED demo sites.

Aventa has developed and produced an all-polymeric solar collector of modular design and flexible in dimensions for building integration. Aventa has pioneer in the delivery of solar thermal collectors fully constructed in polymeric structured sheets. Due to mass production processes possible in polymer extrusion, AventaSolar collectors represent an asset for cost-competitive production of solar heat. These collectors demonstrate aesthetic integration into the building envelope, overcoming existing installation barriers and reducing overall costs at the building site.
