Solar Energy Engineering

Ricardo is actively addressing the critical needs of the solar energy industries.  For concentrated solar power (CSP) generation we provide thermal management and storage, systems integration, and reliability solutions which are crucial for competitiveness and in enabling base-load power generation.  For solar photovoltaic (PV) systems we focus on storage, systems integration, power electronics, innovation cycles and reliability.

Solar energy technology and services:

  • Power electronics and control systems, including tracking systems
  • Development of low cost and robust solutions for application areas such as the solar collector assembly and mirror to frame connections
  • Engine systems (e.g. Stirling cycle) design, development and system integration
  • System modelling and thermal management
  • Design analysis and prototyping
  • Quality improvement, cost reduction and design for manufacture
  • Supplier selection and supply chain management
