Concentrating solar thermal systems are still little known in Germany, although they are a highly efficient approach to producing heat from solar energy. In such a system, specialised mirrors arranged in different geometries are used to focus the Sun’s rays on a defined area, such as a circle or a line. This heats a heat transfer medium, which then flows through a heat exchanger.

Concentrating solar thermal technology ready for efficient use in Germany

As part of its Zero Emission Drive Unit – Generation 1 (ZEDU-1) project – the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) and the engineering company HWA have developed and successfully tested a road vehicle that enables mobility almost entirely without emissions.

ZEDU-1 - The world's most environment-friendly vehicle in operation

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is researching the infrastructure and railway operational framework conditions, working on new, capacity-increasing concepts for vehicles, operations and infrastructure, as well as innovative methods for maintenance and servicing.

The future of rail transport - Technologies for tomorrow

The chassis of a train is a key factor for fast, reliable, safe and comfortable rail transport. The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is working on a new, chassis design for the future as part of its Next Generation Train concept, with each wheel driven individually and controlled with smart technology.

A high-tech chassis for the train of the future
