Solar Energy

In recent years, many renewable energy production technologies have been developed, encouraging the substitution of fossil fuels and nuclear energy, in order to reduce energy costs and CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. In this context, STEM® is considered to be a very promising technology and foreseen to play a leading role in the renewable energy sector.
On June 30, 2016, the first STEM® (Solar Thermo Electric Magaldi) industrial model plant started operations in San Filippo del Mela (Sicily).
Installed in the Integrated Energy Pole of the A2A Group – the largest Italian multi-utility in the energy sector – this innovative CSP technology is the first one worldwide using sand as Thermal Energy Storage.
STEM® technology has been developed and patented by Magaldi Group in cooperation with the Federico II University of Naples and some prestigious institutes of the National Research Council (IRC, INO, ISTEC).
This new CSP system with TES (Thermal Energy Storage) represents a “disruptive” technology because it’s able to collect solar energy – through a solar field made of heliostats – and convert it into thermal energy to be stored and extracted when desired.
