Lausanne start-up hopes to help industry switch to solar heating

For the scientific development work for start-up Solaxer, Anna Krammer was able to count on support provided as part of the BRIDGE programme.

Industry is responsible for nearly one third of the world’s energy consumption, and three quarters of this is attributable to process heat. Instead of using fossil fuels, it is also possible to produce this heat sustainably: through solar thermal energy. The technology of concentrating solar collectors can be exploited to make more efficient use of solar heat.
