SolarNano is the research group focused at development of novel nanofluid-based applications for solar energy. We are particularly interested in:

– direct absorption solar collectors with nanofluid

– selective evaporation of organic fluids

– solar generators for micro-CHP

– solar desalinators and disinfectors

– solar/geothermal cogeneration

Our inter-disciplinary team joins 3 universities:

NRNU Moscow Engineering Physics University

Western Norway University of Applied Sciences

University of Bergen
